How I’m Doing on ‘To Hunt a Sub’

01 Sep

tridentAfter a four-year hiatus from the first book in my Delamagente-Rowe series, I finally think I’ll get it done. I had a few interruptions–agent interest in the series’ second book, deadline for two non-fic series I write–but I think I’m going to make it this time. The short blurb for this thriller–still a work-in-progress is:

…a brilliant PhD candidate, a cynical ex-SEAL, and a quirky bot team up against terrorists intent on stealing America’s most powerful nuclear weapon, the Trident submarine.

Here’s what I did this past month:

  • queried agents. I’ll be doing this for a few weeks.
  • waited on agent responses. Tick tock…
  • collected marketing ideas from you-all. Here’s a master list of 29+ marketing ideas from writers like you. Share it with writer friends; add your own ideas.
  • talked to professional editors. Just in case. It’s good to be prepared. I’d like this on the virtual shelves in time for Christmas.
  • thought about the cover. I have found a few people who might be able to help with that.
  • tried to clean up other writing obligations so I can concentrate on To Hunt a Sub‘s next step.

By this time next month, I hope to be talking to one agent or working with an editor. Either one is fine with me.
