I meant to update much sooner, but at the beginning of July, I received a full request for Lestoor’s Chosen from Angry Robot Books, as part of their 2012 Open Door. I’m stoked and terrified. I’ve been re-reading pieces of it and I alternate between thinking that it’s good and thinking that it’s absolutely wretched and why would they even request the full manuscript because it’s terrible and I should just forget it existed and move on to the next book.
I did some frantic rewrites of the beginning and sent it off. Now it’s down to the looong wait. I don’t expect to hear back for another three months, at the very least. Five or six months is probably more realistic. Meanwhile, I’m going through the agent-querying process.
Crossing fingers and toes!
