Finished, Sort of

I completed Fallen the other day. Meaning I finished the 2nd 1st draft. The first 1st draft was a disaster so I did an almost complete rewrite. So my rewrite is finished but it's still my first draft. So I'm going back through and editing. Well, more like adding in details and filling out scenes. Since the 1st chapter has been fine tooth combed. I'm working on Ch 2. Which I'm hoping to read at my local RWA's critique group. But it will definitely be slow going.

But yeah, me. I finished my second novel. Of course I'm not completely satisfied with the ending. But that's what edits are for. I'm going to work on edits before starting my next project. As well as write a synopsis and query letter. Fallen is entered into two contests right now, but I won't hear anything for a while on those. So, I'm starting with agents. I'm completely at a loss as to how to go about making a list of agents I want to submit to. But like all things I'll figure it out or ask someone.

Congratulations on finishing Fallen, Amanda, and good luck with the revisions.

As to the agent search, check out the blogs for:
Bookends, LLC
Guide to Literary Agents
Pub Rants

They're good and if you search them for agent posts there are a number on how to go about getting an agent. (Also, there is a Guide to Literary Agents book)
