Monday Mayhem – Submissive me

Posted on Mar 2, 2015 by Maggie Wells   2 Comments | Posted in Blog

I’m kicking a couple out of the nest!

Once again, ladies and germs, I am on submission. Gird your loins.

I emailed the manuscript for Bossy Pants (sequel to Three Little Words) to my editor just minutes ago. Now, I have to polish my proposal package for Full Court Press and send it out (on request!) this week as well.

Sending fresh manuscripts out into the world is always nerve-racking. What’s an author to do while she waits? Well, there’s usually a little binge snacking, a lot of hand-wringing, multiple neurotic emails to the critique partner, and then I move on to the final solution…start something new.

Last week, I pitched a few ideas your way and you were kind enough to give me your feedback. Book one in the Hooligans series will be the next full-length manuscript I write, and I am super-excited to tackle Rory and Mary Pat’s story.

But first, I have a couple of chances to pitch/propose other works if I can pull together outlines before the deadlines. So yeah, I’m going to be scrambling for the next couple of weeks. But there are worse problems than too many opportunities, right?

How about you? Do you have multiple projects going in your life? How do you decide which ones get attention first?

    So excited for you! Everything is crossed, excerpt for my fingers because I’m gonna need those for the next few days. Lots of projects on the go for me too. I hope that by next weekend I’ll be able to check off at least three of ’em. Stay tuned! šŸ™‚

    Yay, excited to hear that Hooligans won! Definitely looking forward to reading an excerpt from that sometime in the future. Good luck with the submissions and proposals. I have no need for my fingers this week, so I’ll keep ’em crossed for you – if the wind chill doesn’t freeze them first!
