I got my first response yesterday from a publisher to which I submitted Aurius:
Form letter rejection.
I’m neither surprised nor disappointed by this fact. I was never expecting to be accepted on the first try. However, I am surprised that the response is from the second publisher I submitted to, whom I wasn’t expecting to hear from until December. I wonder, perhaps, if this is a good sign for the first publisher, from whom I was expecting a response within a week or so.
Things have been busy recently and Mario Kart Wii continues to be a very powerful distraction. I did, however, finally realize that Eyes of a Dragon wasn’t going to resolve itself while I sat around being distracted and at least began the next scene at work today. I’ll have a little bit of cleaning up to do later on, but for now, I just need to get it out.
Also, for anyone going to Fan Expo in Toronto this weekend, I don’t have a table or anything, but if you see someone at the Classic Battletech table – or wandering the dealer’s hall – wearing normal clothes with black cat ears, say hi and I’ll draw you something for free.
