Not chewing down trees, mind you, but beginning to address the various steps I need to take to get the Birdie book and the Civil War novel into print.
I've a growing list of small presses to query and my next step is to put together a query letter, a bio, and a marketing plan. Whew!
I've also read a book on self publishing that makes me believe I can manage it for the Birdie book. And I've begun looking over the Birdie stories to see what in order they would be best presented. I also suspect I should write a few more to round out the collection.
Getting my ducks in a row. Onward!
And, speaking of wildlife, these pictures are from an abandoned homestead near us where actual beavers have evidently been at work. That, or the world's most inept logger. Beavers are nocturnal, according to Mr. Google, so I don't hold out any hope of seeing one.
