And so, I'm officially back into the query game. This is the third novel I've written (definitely my best, also) and the fourth time I've gone on the agent hunt. And yet, I'm nervous as hell. Don't know that that ever goes away.TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES (Book 1 in the Etudes in C# series) is a 77,500 word urban fantasy blending magic, myth and the modern world. In the Las Vegas of Catherine Sharp, gods gamble with souls of unassuming humans. Eight years ago, Catherine's soul fell into the possession of Eris, the Greek goddess of Discord. Since then she has been working a dead end technical support job while performing random tasks for the goddess. When Coyote, the Native American trickster himself, claims to have won her soul in Mayhem's weekly poker game, Catherine must get in on the action if she wants to be free. This won't be easy with five trickster gods upping the ante. Along for the ride is Marius, an insatiable satyr with his own debt to Eris. If they play their cards right, Cat and Marius may get their lives back. Assuming they don't kill each other first. I'm really proud of this one and the 6 book series I have planned makes me so giddy! There are days I wish I could just fling the story bible up in the air and let the books spring from my head fully formed. But getting there isn't just half the fun in this case. Just when I think I know all of the ins and outs and twists of this series, something pops out of the story and grows into a new path. This is my favorite part about creation: organic generation where a project sustains itself. That's what staves off burnout.
Anyway, other than the fact that it's freaking cold, my friend Rhys is here visiting (woot!) and my Christmas tree is lit... not much else going on.
How about you?
