My editing has gone very well. I am about a third of the way through, re-editing my initial edits. I have sent a few more query letters as well as a submission to a publisher that publishes horror. The Karma Stone is very dark and would be considered as Paranormal Horror, so I am querying agents that accept that genre, as well as a few small press publishers. As the editing continues the story is fleshing out in all its glory, or should I call it gory.
I will continue updates as they come and complete the final editing in the time frame I have allotted, which is the end of this month. The chance to get this, a different genre out and see what reaction it will garner, makes this work all worth while. The genres of my work could not be any further apart. Splintered: Sierra’s Legacy, a YA crossover fantasy, to a heart warming Christmas paranormal short story in The Christmas Star, to this, The Karma Stone, and then on to Face the Music, a paranormal mystery, featuring to young female sleuths.
When writing, I am considered a pantser. I start with no clear idea of where I am going, the work seems to guide me. I have been amazed at the direction, and at times horrified, I will admit. I admire those who can put together an outline and follow it, that takes some determination. My writing twirls through my mind, twisting and weaving, constantly leaving me breathless. What a rush though.
Thank you again for staying the course, I am extremely energized to move on to the next installment of the Karma Stone. Woot!!
