Finished

Hi,

I'm tired. I've been working really hard and I did get "Victor's Rage" translated. Also, I managed to finish two of three parts of Amadi, my current WIP, only to hear from my agent that not many publishers are interested in the story. She is still waiting for the answer of one or two publishers but I don't have high hopes. Now, I know how Holly Lisle must have felt when the last part of her "Sun and Moon"-trilogy was canceled.

Still, I won't whine. Also, I will finish Amadi because I really like this story and it would be a shame to drop it. I might just take more time than I had originally planned. Out of sadness, I decided to take part in NaNoWriMo again, this year. I will write a fantasy-mystery - again a project that doesn't fit neatly into a box.

I think it is time for publishers to start thinking outside of boxes. With the current developments in e-book-reading devices, it is likely that shelf-space won't matter much in the future (not the very near future but not too far away either). To get my own career started, I am looking for ways to built up an audience but I have to think and plan some more before I can go public.

Hope you don't feel as down as I do,
Cat
