    Boarders Writing a Novel Part 15

    I've written a lot of fanfiction. If I hadn't, I would never have made any progress on learning to handle short story format - I've never much enjoyed reading any original stuff shorter than novella length, but a top notch short story length fanfic makes good reading practice and good writing practice. Edits and copy-edits finally done on my book 2... and I now have two totally different totally new novel plots shoving around in my head competing for space. Joy.

    Boarders Writing a Novel Part 15

    Having requests for fulls is always a good sign. Even if those agents refuse the manuscript you then know it's got legs, or the full wouldn't have been requested. I hope your energy comes back... Ooh, good luck. I finished my first draft of The Next Book yesterday. Title for The Next Book is currently under discussion due to all the possibles being the same title as something else, so we're working on selecting the best option - its working title is The Wages of Sin. I'm currently staring at chapter 2 and wondering how I can do better with some pacing/character introduction aspects.

    Blatant and shameless reminder that I am Campbell-eligible this year (and next!) for Sailor to a Siren. Goodreads page here. Look-inside available on UK Amazon here (also available on several other Amazon country-specific stores).

    Board Issues 4

    I am posting this from Firefox as I am having trouble using the forum on my mobile phone's browser. I can log in on my phone. However, I cannot go to next page from within a thread - the next/previous/last etc. buttons at the bottoms of each page don't work. I also can't use the last unread post feature on my phone, or the go-to-numbered-page buttons. I can go to the first page of each thread, and can also go to the final post in each thread and therefore to the last page, but can't use any other thread-browsing features. I also can't reply to threads on my phone. I use the standard Android browser.

    While the board was emerging from its chrysalis and discovering that everything was the same as before, Sailor to a Siren came out in ebook format, last Friday.  The link is to my publisher's site, which, in turn, links onward to most or all e-reader formats.

    :) Hope it meets expectations. To anyone popping in from the Boarders Writing a Novel thread and on the verge of querying, the cover blurb/Goodreads blurb consists of the three-paragraph hook from my query letter.
