Waiting, waiting, and more waiting. That seems to be the name of the game in the world of writing. My novel, Case of the Missing Look-Alikes was chosen as an Editor's Pick by Book Country, a Penguin Community site for the month of November http://blog.bookcountry.com/book-country-editors-picks-november/ I'm doing cartwheels and back flips, virtual ones, mind you! I still don't have either an agent or a publisher, but having my book in this venue might find it a home. In the interim, I'm updating and polishing my query letter for the umpteenth time in order to send it out. This is all part of the publishing process.
My Muse says I need to get busy on the next book in the series and quit worrying. I believe my Muse is correct.
