Lit. Update: Cozy Mystery Novel


The Whiteraven Net

  I’m pleased to announce the submission process has begun! I’m awaiting replies from a couple of agents, while also searching for others to query. I’m taking my time and being very careful, asking as many probing questions as possible. It’s the best way to avoid scams that target new authors.

I’m happy to say that I have collected all the poems I have written to date, and the revisions are progressing very well. Several pieces that have been deleted from this site have been re-written and expanded. I will continue to share updates but am not posting excerpts quite yet.  

Working on the poetry is a nice change of pace from the cozy mystery. And yes, an update on that is forth-coming, as well.
