Well I am nearly done with the first book of Vampire's Fairy Tale. I am revising the last few chapters and have already started query agents (because I am crazy.) So far I've gotten one response tell me that my style is amazing but people just aren't reading 'Dystopain Fantasy'...I guess they don't consider Hunger Games Fantasy. I find it a bit silly for them to put it that way. They can't predict whether or not people are going to read something that hasn't been done before. I suppose people don't like to take risks when it comes stepping out of the familiar. I want to say 'I know people will enjoy this!' but that would be very brash and unprofessional of me. 

I would like people to start spreading the word about Vampire's Fairy Tale: It began with a Fire. I want to get at least 50 rejections before I contemplate self publishing. I understand a lot of people do it and become successful, but to me it won't validate me and my writing. I have nothing against it or people who use it, but I really want to have that 'professional' publisher/agent/editor look at my book and just go ga-ga over it. I guess it's my authority issues or something. My desire to please or my utter hopes to make someone who is officially above me recognize my abilities. So in no way do I frown on those who self publish, it is just something I don't think would help validate me immediately.

Now here is where the pain comes in making things just over the top crazy. Over the last few weeks my jaw has been hurting, now it's swelling and I just found a lump along my jaw line that indicates my wisdom tooth is coming in. Despite this I have been revising at LEAST five pages a day and have only 1/3 to 1/4 of my novel left to revise before I can set it aside and say 'Well this is shiny, let's go into full force query mode!'

So if you have any suggestions on how to reach my goals, agents that you think might like VFT or just some friendly advice it would be very welcome.

PROPAGANDA MOMENT!!!
This where I will put amazing people who are pushing my name around and I am returning the favor. If you want in just tell people your opinion of me. I don't care if you say I am a bag of rocks at the bottom of a river, as long as you get people to read my stuff you get a spot here!

maelstromm15 Notes: Poet. I still need to read their work, but from our conversations, they are a pretty bright individual who is willing to try something new at least once. (Note to self, read their work when you get time!!!)

Thank you, I love all of you ^.^

Doing great just decided it was time to come back. Actually I have ulterior motives. I am now a senior editor at an online publisher and I came back to start trying to find new talent. It looks like you had a baby? Congrats - they are beautiful creatures.

I am an editor now and looking for new talent to contract and publish. We're starting to put out anthologies again and I need short stories. So, why not look through deviantart?

Yes I did. Makes life and writing more interesting, but worth it. May I inquire what these ulterior motives may be?
