Today I proofed the first 50 pages of my 300 page mainstream novel. I can't tell you how good it feels to be back working.
The other good news is, I still love this story and these characters. It's been a year since I looked at this novel seriously.
I decided to go with this project because I have two places to submit it. One publisher I found seems like a good match. And while this book has had an agent before, I have the name of another one that I think might be a great fit.
The main character in this novel is Vada Faith Waddell who has been unhappy for most of her life. She blames everyone besides herself for her
unhappiness. When she decides to answer a newspaper ad to be a surrogate mother for a childless couple, she sets in motion events that change her life and the lives of others in the small town of Shady Creek, West Virginia.
It's been a fun book to write and I hope it's fun to read.
Editing and finishing should only take a few weeks. Then I can get it out.
Hey, have a great week end. Weather here is beautiful and I AM on the mend.
Blessings for reading my humble offerings. And for all your good wishes. Barb
