New Agent a Good Influence

I've only been represented by Amy Boggs a couple of weeks, and she's already proving to be a good influence on my writing habits. One of the tasks assigned to me was an outline of where the VICIOUS CIRCLE series is headed in its sequel. I had some vague ideas to that effect, but nothing definite. This forced me to get my thoughts in order.

So, I spent the weekend preparing a rough synopsis of book two, currently titled DARK ADDICTION. Between my general notions and the hubby's brilliant input, I think I've pulled together a pretty good plot. We'll see how well it holds up after Amy and a future editor make changes to book one, but at least it's a starting point. It even served to provide a guide toward book three in what I'm thinking will be a three-book story arc.

I will say, it's weird getting back into that particular protagonist's head after so much time has passed. I rather missed writing her, actually. Cor is dark and sarcastic, but with a definite sensitive side. However, given the amount of torture I'm about to put her through, she would kill me if we ever met on the street.

Hey there, Lisa! Sounds like your new agent is keeping your muse in line. ;-)

I need to start on my next WIP, too. I'm having a hard time getting back into writing mode after being in the query circle for those few months. But my story is starting to wake me up at night, so I think I'm almost there.

BTW, I've started up a series on my blog of successful writers who used QT to find their dream agent. I'm trying to promote other authors and QT both. If you're interested in guest posting, please let me know!
