Potential Projects

Again, more time has gone by and I'm just chugging along.

I should have my first edit job done by next week, and then I might take a little time to work on some of my own projects before taking on another manuscript. Unfortunately, the second piece that I was going to review was withdrawn by the author, but for very good reason - the author got an agent. Congrats and best of luck to her in her endeavors. I wish I could name names and titles, but alas, I probably shouldn't. I'm sure her work will be on bookshelves in the near future anyway.

I recently submitted a 2,500 word short story to Immortal Works for a mythology anthology they're putting together. I might attempt to be the head honcho of another short story anthology, since I have a few ideas, but I'd like to see what other writers to add to the kitty.

More to come.

Somewhat of A Progress Report

In the few weeks since my last post...

I'm still reviewing my first assigned manuscript from Immortal Works.
I've got another waiting on the heels of the first.
I got one who's premise had promise, but the prose needed some polishing.
That's about as much as I can say in regards to any of them. It's how the business works. If you want to discuss a book:
A) Wait for it to be published.
B) Buy it and read it.
C) Recommend your friends do the same.

I'm still dipping my quill (albeit minimally). I know that's no excuse, but between a full time job, a wild toddler, and editing (and Facebook, and Youtube, etc.) I'm afraid I've fallen into neglecting my own stuff.

One Small Step, One Giant Leap

This morning I signed my first publishing contract.

My editor had already told me it was a go, but signing my name on the official paperwork was still momentous!

New BIG News!

After checking with my editor/mentor today, I was given the go ahead to post more about our project, "The Valcoria Anthology" currently under contract with Curiosity Quills, due out in October 2017.

But because I wrote my short story under the name C.J. Workman, which I'll continue to write under, I decided to create this new blog to go along.

For any other new/would-be authors out there, be sure to check out the Submissions page over on Immortal Works as well.

Stay tuned.
