Great news! The first TWO books of the Finding Home trilogy, THE ORCHARD and THE INN, have been accepted by Covenant!
The sad news? The third book, THE LAKE, has been put on hold. Actually, I now have my first "temporary rejection", which I didn't know existed. It means they see potential and will get back to it after we see how the first 2 books do. Or not.
I started to get down about this until I focused on the fact that the first two books ARE GOING TO BE PUBLISHED. And that they've accepted the second book before the first one is even out!
I shouldn't start second guessing myself, worrying that everything else I've written since the second book must be drivel, or patting myself on the back saying, "Well, it was a good run, but now it's time to take up something that doesn't acquire so much attention, like dental assisting or librarian. Nobody critiques a librarian. Unless she laughs too loudly. I'd have to go with the dental thing.
But I'm not going to. Because the writing thing has attached itself to me like so much Krazy Glue.
I just need to figure out how to make THE LAKE stick. But later.
For now I'll focus on what is working. Thankfully, I have some of that to keep me from poking sharp objects into people's mouths.
