The book is now flying around New York cyberspace, hunting for an agent. I have many more places to send Rocky to find some one who will love her. I want to re-polish the synopsis and then off she goes to even more agencies next week.
I'm having fun with the new story, this is the one set at the end of the American Civil War. I'm starting to find the voices of the characters. I read my writing lesson for the week, and went in and re-wrote the four pages of dialogue that I had written this morning. It was improved, and I know the female characters much better. The ladies are getting four, possibly five men as playmates in the story. I'm still deciding who is getting the girl, I have not introduced any of them yet, I hoping that the characters will let fly with some sparks when they meet. The old guy may get the woman that he has known since she was a little girl, but he has already shown a fondness for the older woman, Emeralda. I think that is a cool name. It was my grandmothers middle name. She had a twin sister and I think that her middle name was Pearl. I don't have a first name for the female heroine yet, she will probably come up with something in the next few days. I have the children named, those just fell from my fingers when I started writing about them. We have Tilly and Peter. The ship Captain is named after my children's Great Grand Father Capt. Nason. Hey, I didn't know I was writing a family saga. No, it is not going to be a generational novel.I don't have that type of attention span.LOL.
