My winning pitch is now residing with that wonderful artwork on my ‘Mortal Instinct’ page. All this pitch did was get me a foot in the door in which to insert my submission package (Bio, synopsis, sample chapters, etc). Now I wait ….. which is not to say that I’m resting on my laurels.
Mortal Instinct is just the first in the series. We have ‘The Awakener’ (Working title) that’s just scooting through its second draft. ‘Shadowlands’ (also a working title) is a collection of scenes, notes, character descriptions and world-building information, with a loosely woven plot somewhere in the middle. I don’t think that even qualifies as a first draft yet.
And then, over there in the corner, we have the outlines for at least two more stories that have risen out of the pages of ‘Mortal Instinct’ and demanded to be told.
The one thing I’m sticking to with all of these yet-to-be-written projects is that they move the overall story arc of the series forward. (Heh, that’ll send them scurrying back into their dens to re-work their plotlines!)
