Laundry List

I got asked by a niece and nephew when they could expect to see copies of "The Storm Drain Chronicles: Enter the Storm Drain."  Whoo-wee, that's a loaded question right now!  That makes at least three of us wondering, I suppose.  As I see it, here is the high-level laundry list of things that need to be done:
  1. Finish first revision (In progress)
  2. Alpha review first revision (on deck)
  3. Incorporate alpha review revisions, resulting in second revision
  4. Alpha review second revision
  5. Incorporate alpha review second review revisions
  6. Beta review
  7. Incorporate beta review revisions
  8. Finalize beta reviewed revision
  9. Seek out literary agent
  10. Acquire services of literary agent
  11. Submit to publishers
  12. Contract with publisher
  13. Get published!
There are probably a hundred other tasks/milestones in there somewhere, but right now, I'm heads down on steps one and two, which have some overlap and I hope that steps three through five will be quick, too.  quick, of course, being a relative term.

Thoughts on the list?  Too much?  Not enough?  Tips for making it go faster?

Signing off!


  1. Sounds about right. Except you forgot the part where you go to the Storymakers conference! :)

  2. Thanks Jeanna Stay--I'll have to check that conference out! ;o)
