Literary Agents?

Last night, I chatted with an author friend, Jeff Lane.  

He suggested that when I was ready I should query literary agents to see if any see the potential in my book.  I had not even considering attempting to go the traditional publishing route with novel.

My plan until last night, was to self publish via Amazon KDP.  Thanks to the links that Jeff sent, I will reach to a few literary agents, one at a time before self publishing.  I assume it will be mostly rejections or no response at all, but that just sounds like it is part of the process.

Have you reach out to literary agents?  Let me know in the comments.

You can find Jeff''s books on Amazon via my affiliate link:  My personal favorite of his books was One Way.  It's fantastic.  I thoroughly enjoyed this creative take on time travel.  I was very invested in the story and characters. There several things I didn't see coming, and I couldn't wait to see how it ended.

Writing and Planning

I have continued working on the second Sylas Sterling novel. I’ve written about 2,250 words so far. The first book was nearly 49,000, so I’ve got a ways to go. In addition to starting that book, I’ve been brainstorming. So, I’ve also got some general idea of what I want the third book to be able about. If all goes according to plan, I hope to have a comic book available to tie into the third books release. If you have any feedback, I’d take it into consideration while the next book is in progress. One other note in regards to the first book. I made some additional corrections after the initial publication, so if you come across some punctuation errors I think they have mostly been fixed.

Twitter, Word Count and Third Draft

Thanks again to the writing community on Twitter. Yesterday, I hit 250 Twitter followers! Thanks everyone. Today, I wrote 633 words. I finished another chapter in my second novel, and I also made a few small additions to my first novel’s third draft. Thanks, J. Allen Tucker

Starting a Sequel

While promoting my first novel, I haven’t written much. Today, I wrote 711 words and got started on the sequel to Sylas Sterling and the Lucas County Curse. I do have another work in progress, that I will return to occasionally. A random part of the process seemed interesting to me. As I was starting a new word document, I decided to save it, like everyone should to make sure that they don't lose their work. I realized that I needed a name for the document. At first, I considered, SylasSterling2, but I wanted something more creative. I went with a title that I will not share here, since the working title could be the actual title. I will say that it included the word “Two.” Time will tell if this title sticks. For the first book, I change the main character name and book title name multiple times trying to find something unique that I really liked. Thanks, J. Allen Tucker
