Spiralling in and out, not yet awake,
For mere mortals here are we,
No strangers, but visitors to this land
And carefully tread we must till
Some Divinity does take us by the hand.
Then into some warm and nestled place
We will be led,

Forever With Me

I don’t think I quite realised the effect completing a book would have on me.  I had greatly underestimated the sense of loss I would feel, once there was nothing left to work on.  I have two other books awaiting my attention for editing.  However, they cannot compare to the first book.  It is finished, written, edited, soon to be sent to agents.

Biting the Langseax...

It's finally arrived; the fated moment when I realised I could do no more redrafting and my first of a trilogy was ready to wend its way to agents.  Heaving a deep sigh, I have begun the task of printing what must constitute half a forest.  Not as many agents accept electronic submissions as I thought, but several will retain your MSS for shredding and recycling, which acts as a bonus.
