My novel “Speechless”

It’s not published. But it will be.

I just finished my third major revision. The first draft won third prize among 2700 entries in the Simon and Schuster First Chapters contest, but needed a lot of work. The second version had agents asking for a partial, and then the whole manuscript. But the “theme was too dark”. Now, finally, agents tell me I have a very good book ( though they won’t sign me on yet because the pacing needs some minor adjustment – with the publishing industry in such deep doo-doo, they can now only accept cut and polished diamonds).

But that’s okay. I’m willing to re-pace, revise and re-submit. Until I get that agent call asking for an exclusive contract.
