Well, here goes…(update)

Fingers crossed. I just resubmitted a pitch for a short story and threw in a pitch for a pocket digest. Now to finish preparing for guests and start writing.

3/8/2017

Heard back from my publisher today. Tempered good news. The second pitch for the short story is accepted and it was much better than the original. I was instructed the proposal at least still light on the Pulp feel being sought so I need to step that up. Pretty sure I can pulp it out a bit.

And exciting, to me, is my publisher agreed, once I write it, to look at a 25,000-30,000 pocket novel and perhaps consider it. No commitments here except the promise to look at it. It will be my first shot at a stand alone. Accepted or not, this will be a great learning experience for me in my writing. I have hot 15,000 to 17,000 words just getting out a 10,000ish word story. I’ll be shooting for two to three times my usual length. And I know from experience already, my publisher will tell me straight up what works and what does not. So here goes!
