I’ve finished the manuscript for Synonym Girl– out of the original 111 poems written this cycle I narrowed the selection down to 77 (I took out more this time because there was a large handful of poems that were too overtly religious for general reading. Those will go into my continuously growing stock of religious poems to be published separately either as a chapbook or full length book depending on how large it gets).
So now it’s time to start sending out to presses! Still no positive word back for To My First Love, At Midnight but several presses recently requested the full and there are others I’m still waiting to hear back from. The only way I’ll get lucky is if I continue to put myself out there, though, so here’s to showing those publishers that I’ve done a lot of growth!
