Out the door

Well, I've scrubbed it, wishweaver scrubbed it, two beta readers from Absolute Write scrubbed it and I'm sick and tired of it.

So, for better or for worse, the synopsis/pitch for The Dark Shore is en route to the publisher in the United Kingdom. I think it's a pretty strong pitch, but then again, I'm prejudiced toward myself on matters like this.

Do I think I'll get picked up? Who knows? I know one other writer team that's going for this and they're pretty darn good, so I know I've got good competition. But I wouldn't have it any other way. If I'm going to make the cut, I want it to be because I had the better story, not because there weren't enough good pitches.

Now, time to relax and return to the Chronicles. I can smell the salt in the wind and that tells me there's a crew of privateers waiting (somewhat impatiently) for me to get back to writing about them.

Thanks!

I've really been stressing about this - probably because I have *nothing* coming my way as far as tie-in work in the foreseeable future. After getting two assignments last year, I thought I had turned a corner, but the confidence took a bit of a hit this year.

That being said, I guess I have more time to work on my original stuff.
