The last of my first draft readers got back to me yesterday, and the news was good. Very good, in fact. It can be terribly difficult for a writer to get a clear sense of success without external input, and I feel quite privileged to have such able first readers. I’d name them, but I don’t know if I have permission to do so.
Anyway, I’m making some adjustments this week. Then I will make a list of agents and start shopping it. I’m anticipating a seven-figure deal by election day. It’s that easy, right?
