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

Title Reveal Coming Soon for Second Novel!

Since 2021, I have slowly been working on the sequel novel to Sylas Sterling and the Lucas County Curse.  Recently, I have been making some progress with the book.  I have also been working on a few others things. I have had the name of the second book for quite some time, but I have not revealed it here or via social yet.  I will be announcing the name soon. I am have an update on the design side of the book.  I created the cover for the first book, and I have finally went through several variations for the cover for the second book.  What I have currently may not be the final version, but it is probably close.  I will be doing a cover reveal, once we are a bit closer to the book publication. At the time, I do not have a date set for the publication of the second novel, but I will be updating that on this website, before I post anything on Twitter (X), Instagram, etc. Leave a comment below, if you have any questions.
