Speak the Ocean is Done! (Which Means: Query Time!)

Happy HAPPY Thursday, Aledan Merfolk! I’m happy to say we didn’t float away in last weekend’s flood, although we weren’t able to leave the neighborhood for a couple days. It made for a soggy birthday, but the chickens loved the rain – it brought up all the worms and they had a feast!

It rained so much even the cats learned to use umbrellas.

In even happier news that you might have already guessed from the title: SPEAK THE OCEAN is done! Wooooooo! Erie’s aged up so I can label it Adult instead of NA, and I’ve fixed every crutch word I could find. The last several scenes still make me cry, so I haven’t edited the heart out of it. It’s as ready to query as it’ll ever be, so once my agent list is ready I’m going to send out the first batch!

I’m sick of mermaids.

It’s Enfield time!

I still have a bunch of world building to finish before I can start writing. And I have to figure out what happens in the middle of the book to get from point A to point Z, but I’ll finally have time to devote to it without feeling like I’m procrastinating StO.

While I’m world building Enfields, I may work on re-writing the beginning of Nameless as well. I tinkered with it a bit the past couple of weeks, but didn’t get much done because StO was looming that entire time.

But first I’m celebrating with a glass of wine!

Have a wonderful weekend, Aledan Merfolk! I’m heading to see The Martian since I was rained in last weekend. I can’t wait! I also *gasp* have a custom pony to feature this weekend. In fact, I have TWO! Check back on Sunday for those beauties 🙂
