I won!

Last night, I went to the 2012 Prince George Regional Arts and Cultural Awards evening because I was one of the nominees in the fiction category along with Lynda William and Heather Mantler, and to my surprise I won. Sweet! :-D

Update part two

As promised, here’s some more news. I’ll start with the biggest one. Drum roll! I am thrilled to announce that I am now represented by Thao Le of the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. Yay! :-D Thao is absolutely lovely and great to work with. I love her enthusiasm and professionalism. Plus, she has a very good editorial eye.

I was signed over a humorous science fiction project originally titled Special Delivery. Thao loved the tongue-in-cheek feel of the story and really connected with its main character Jessie. She also recognized that the story had some weaknesses and needed work, especially the plot, and sent me a list of revisions. I thought they were great; they improved the storyline tremendously. The novel was also given a new, catchier title, Corebound.

I have two other projects needing revisions, an urban fantasy and a science fiction. I’m waiting for Thao’s list of notes to begin those. So in the meantime, I’m working on a contemporary fantasy I’ve started a while back. I have half the first draft penned down. I would love to finish it by mid fall. Wish me luck! :-)
