LDStorymakers 15

I just attended the LDStorymakers 2015 conference. Here's all my news.

I attended the Publication Primer on Thursday. My mentor was Sam Millburn, editor at Covenant Communications. She edits Sarah Eden, Melanie Jacobson, and others. She requested a full of Promised.

I entered the first 10,000 words of Promised in a First Chapter contest and won second place in the Woman's and Romance division!

And then I had a manuscript consultation with Shadow Mountain and they want a full as well!

This is all so very, very exciting. So, now I've got a few edits to do on Promised and then I'm going to submit it to two publishers!!  Wish me luck!

Finished

I did it.
I finished.
I wrote a book.
A 90,000 word manuscript.

And in one week I'll be reviewing its beginning pages with two different publishers.

Here's the Pinterest board for it, if you're interested: https://www.pinterest.com/leahgarriott/writing-margaret/

Internal pride is a wonderful thing.

I've started my next book.
It's going to be even better.
