Someone lit a fire under me. Obviously, I’m talking figuratively.
I have more news about RealmWalker: New Beginnings, but I’m going to wait a little bit before I share that. In the meantime, I’ve got the motivation to get Anchor (aka Book 2) started.
I had started it a while back, then I had edits to do on New Beginnings. So I set Anchor aside. And then I kind of got stuck and didn’t remember where I was going with it.
Enter the plot bunny.
I call her “Mom.”
She had a “what if…” scenario for me. And I loved it! So I scrapped what I had done on book 2 so far (it wasn’t a lot) and started over.
And, once I find an appropriate image to go with this post (and my Internet quits cutting out so I can get it posted!), I’m going on that. At the moment, I’m letting Jeffrey (the new sub-main character) talk to me.
Here’s to fires and plot bunnies! May you have as many of you need of one or the other…or both.
I have another update for you if you’re keeping up with the status of RealmWalker: New Beginnings.
I got an email from the editor requesting the full manuscript. I had the full finished when I sent her the first three chapters a couple weeks ago, so I sent that to her today. Here is part of the email reply from her:
from here I’m sending it on for what’s called a Preliminary Read. it’s like asking for a second set of eyes–all in preparation for a Request For Contract.
That doesn’t mean this is a done deal but it’s a step in the right direction.
This is a delight to read!!!
thank you thank you thank you. You have made my day.
I’m pretty sure SHE made MY day.
OK. I might have made her day, too. I don’t know. I’m not there.
I will be sure to let you know when there is more news.
On a related subject, I had a friend say that judging by the title, this is a work of fiction and that they thought I write only nonfiction.
Yes, the RealmWalker series is fiction. I almost said I don’t write a lot of fiction, but that’s not exactly accurate. It would be more correct to say I don’t publish a lot of fiction. Most of what has been published is nonfiction.
All nonfiction and poetry is published under Jen Nipps.
All fiction is published under Kat O’Reilly.
