I’ve submitted my latest novel, THE SUITOR, to my agent, after we’d gone back and forth on some edits.
The story centers on three characters: recent college-grad and law-school-bound Anna; the ambitious and scheming Kyle, who loves her; and Anna’s father, Art, who doesn’t like the idea of Anna and Kyle together.
I’ve got another shot with this one. The novel has a lot going for it. The story is propulsive, the characters are multidimensional, the writing is strong. My early readers were convinced. My agent thinks I’ve got something.
All that is not nearly enough. The publishing industry (the whole world) is in enormous chaos, my sales history stinks, the competition is unrelenting.
Now I need to get lucky. My agent has to land THE SUITOR on the right publisher’s desk at the exact right moment in time for this to happen. Godspeed to you, THE SUITOR.
