Overdue Update! (My first R&R)

Hey, everyone!

I know it's been a while since I've posted on here (I'm so sorry about that). Between school, work, and writing, I really have been super busy these past few months! But I just wanted to jump on here to give you all a quick update (if anyone is even still reading my posts). :)

Anyway, so far I haven't gotten that many reviews for Roses Are Red (I believe I've gotten about 10 reviews total when I add them up on Amazon and Goodreads), but overall all of the reviews I've gotten have been pretty positive! :)

I decided on a whim to start querying my novel The Suit War, an upper middle grade fantasy, again. I wrote it back in 2012 and only queried about 20 or so agents before I gave up and moved on to writing my next book. Back in October 2014, I decided to post TSW up on, just to see what others thought of it and to try and build a fan base for my other books. Since it was so well-received, I've decided to try finding an agent for it again.

So far I've received multiple rejections, two full requests, and one revise and resubmit. I just received the R&R this afternoon, which is super exciting because the particular agent seemed to really think my manuscript had promise if I just made the changes she suggested. Thus, I've already started making the changes (which all make complete sense to me), and I hope she likes them once I resubmit my manuscript her.

I also have another old novel that I've started putting my attention back into: BOB, a young adult contemporary novel. I have made a list of edits I want to do to that book, so once I'm completely done revising TSW, my plan is to get into sprucing up BOB.

Welp, I think that's all I have for updates for now. Thank you all for listening!
