Here's Hoping

Quick update.

In case you weren't aware, I wrote a yet-to-be-published novel called Slip Away. I have a killer agent who has been pimping the crap out of it. We've sent proposals (query letters, synopses, and the first three chapters) to many publishers.

This week, two publishers requested us to send the entire novel.

If you believe in the power of positive thought, please send me good vibes. I've dreamed of being a novelist since I was a child. I still have that dream, strongly, and this is as close as I've ever been.

It could happen. Please, keep me in your thoughts and prayers. This could be big. Let's hope, hope, hope it works out.



  1. That's excellent news, buddy! You're an incredible talent who will no doubt succeed! We'll just hope and pray that this time is your time! Just remember us little ones when you're at the top! ;)

  2. Thank you so much, Joel. I'll never forget anyone who encouraged me or supported me. All my readers and fans, past, present, and future, they're the ones who make my career a reality.

    Ugh. I've put so much into this. So much. This book shall be published, and I'll make sure of it, if through sheer force of will. I've come so far, so much farther than most prospective authors, and the WANT-O-METER is pegged.

  3. I hope this new year of the tiger will be prosperous to you and bring your novel on many people's bookshelves!! ^^

    By the way, I've changed my blog and am not really using blogger anymore. Try to pass by to have a look if you have time. It's still a bit sketchy (ok... a lot) but I'm working on it!

  4. Mortenzen, I've been "planning" to get off Blogger (and over to Wordpress or even to Movable Type via, my web host) for some time now. I just haven't gotten around to it. Now I'm too busy, really, with freelance work. Hopefully soon I'll be too busy with the novel and being a writer of fiction. Anyway, I like your blog and will visit regularly.

  5. Yes I am using wordpress right now. It's not perfect but much nicer to use than blogger.
    Thanks for the nice feedback, I hope to make that blog better with time, I'd like to make it like a "go to" place for people who live around here and share the same interests... Let's see if I can make that happen.

  6. Awesome Joel! I have that same dream :) I really hope that it goes well for you!! :D You have one sale from me when (not if!) it gets published! :)
