View Full Version : the trigger's been pulled

Some of you (or may not) know a year ago I decided to move from writing Christian fiction to being a Christian who writes fiction ... there's a difference. After four novels published in the CBA, it was time to go.

That said, for the past few months my agent and I have been working on strategy, and yesterday she sent queries for Pitfall, the first of my new general market, Cameron Bane suspense series, to ten secular editors, with more to come. The ones she's approached so far incude Berkley, Tor-Forge, Little Brown, Grand Central, and St. Martins. All very big boys.

This is brand-new territory for me, folks. Prayers appreciated.

Thanks! :D

May you sell faster than you imagined and for more money than you hoped.

I can't say it any better than the two posts that precede mine, but I do wish you the very best.

Thanks, guys!

ETA: I just heard from my agent, and the editor at Tor just asked for the full! Man, that was FAST! :D

Knock 'em dead, John.

Thanks, folks. As of yesterday morning, the editor at Tor now has the manuscript. My fingernails are already gnawed down to nubs, so can I borrow somebody else's? :D
