I have bad news and I have good news.
The bad news I received a rejection letter from my latest submission/inquery. I was so excited about it but hey, that's the way it goes.
The good news is I took that same manuscript and posted it to my new critique group and have received some great suggestions. I'm making changes and I will post it with the group again later. Once I'm happy with all the changes I think I am going to try to get an agent.
So that's where I'm at. I haven't posted much because I've been busy editing my manuscript.
