So Very Close
I'm seriously finishing my novel, people. I'm close. This is my last time through; this is my 12th year of living with these characters. (You have to live with them for a long time and follow them around to see what they're going to do. You have to love them more than yourself.) This version is good; it kind of scares me. Anyway, it's off to the mainstream editor (who loved the first 100 pages and emailed recently with a check-in to reconfirm her interest). I'd say within 3 weeks. Maybe I'll try it sans agent this time, which is how I sold my first book. Editor first. Agent second. Maybe that will be my own personal good luck formula.
