Let the Great Agent Hunt Begin!


I finished revisions on The Swallow’s Spring during Christmas break, and tomorrow–MLK day–I am going to finish typing in the changes on the first 50 pages and send her out to the agents and editors who have requested see them.

At last. What a long haul! When I set out to do just one, last, quick revision in September, I did not think it would take so long. However, I think the recommendations made by Karen Ball, of the Steve Laube Agency, have definitely helped me to take the quality up another notch. Thank you, Karen! I know I feel the manuscript is definitely stronger. I can’t wait to send Swallow on her way!

And so, let the great agent hunt begin!



  1. Yay! Good luck. It is a fantastic manuscript! Pat


    • Thanks! I plan to get a few more queries out this next week.


      • I sent out Crossing the Kalahari on Thursday. It felt good to send something out after a long gap. Good luck to Swallow’s Spring.


        • Good wishes to Kalahari. It’s a wonderful story!
