I’ve spent the last several days going over the first edits of my new YA science fiction book, Miranda of Daris, with Maxine Bringenberg, editor at World Castle Publishing. It’s exciting to have another one in the works.
I wrote Miranda over a year ago, and I still like it, but I notice that my writing has matured a bit since then. I still have a tendency to “telescope” stories and need to keep working at slowing down the pacing. That’s one disadvantage of having been a journalist. We tend to get to the point entirely too quickly. Not everything is a Dr. Who marathon.
Meanwhile, I continue the search for a literary agent to represent my latest sf/fantasy novel.
Update: A new edition of Miranda is scheduled for publication in March 2018.
