I have returned from a productive visit to the local post office.
I sent my manuscript to a publisher the old-fashioned way this afternoon, in a mailing envelope, complete with cover letter and self-addressed, stamped envelope. There are still some publishers that accept non-solicited manuscripts from writers without agents, and that describes my writing situation!
It is exciting to send it into the hands of an editor. I have put it through 7 drafts, so it is time for more feedback, and perhaps—acceptance. But that is now out of my hands. It is time to breathe deeply and to continue with the other writing projects.
Tomorrow I will continue with working on the 3rd draft of my second novel and composing the 1st draft of my third novel.
For now though, I have submitted Evil Lives After, a supernatural thriller, to a publisher!
