After one year and not quite one month of finishing my literary novel, I’ve had my first request for a full MS! With the current changing state of the publishing world and literary agents tightening their belts in regards to taking on new clients, not to mention the experimental nature of my debut making it a harder one to swallow, I was starting to think I’d have to wait for one of my other projects to kick off the ground first. Some good news has given me a fresh burst of excitement.

Since Joseph gave my novel the final critique it needed for that good old obsidian-shine, he deserves credit too – although, I did keep the final Irish-cream liqueur for myself! 🙂
