And then it's done.
And then we worry.......will anyone like it? Will an agent want to represent you?
This is where I currently am. Between that will-anyone-like-it rock and the agent hard place.
Today, a friend and member of one of my critique groups shared her feedback with me.
- She called my main character a wonderful, gentle but strong boy.
- She said he was on a heroic journey in the story and handled it with grace.
- She said she read the story all the way through and couldn't put it down because she loved the character so much.
- She pointed out similarities I didn't even realize about the protagonist's and the antagonist's struggles.
And my heart sang.
And now I dare to hope that the queries I'll be sending out in the next 2-3 weeks, will touch an agent's heart and make it sing as well.
Then I can start the process over again with a new project.
Unless I get stuck thinking about publishers.....
