So I published a second book of poetry, Await the Light, to go along with my first book of poetry, Canticles to Ghosts. Both can be purchased at Amazon.com. In other news, the brilliant suicide-prevention website, To Write Love On Her Arms, has opted to publish one of my essays sometime in late February or early March, so that is exciting to me. I need to get an official author website set up, but until I can buy a suitable domain, I will be using this one to promote my work.
At this time, I am sending out queries for my novel, Noah Knows. This is the story of a precognitive/telekinetic boy and his best friend (who has similar powers) as they navigate life and the question of just because you can, does that mean you should? I hope to find an agent to promote it, but writing query letters and synopses is tedious and difficult. Necessary, however, and part of the business of writing. At this point, there is no better way to find an agent, and so I press on.
Self-publishing is an option, of course, but until I have exhausted the agent/publisher route, I will stay the course. There is something in me that says you cannot call yourself an AUTHOR unless you are published by a “real” publishing house. I know that might be silly, but there you have it.
