Link Blitz

The to-do list keeps growing and I have a lot of KSL shopping ahead of me (washer/dryer, microwave cart, couch, and if I can find one of those Japanese standing screens...). Meanwhile I need to find time to get that shiny passport and apply (and apply, and apply) for jobs!

But, on the writing side of things, I've finally started my prose revisions for CITY OF TEETH. AKA the last (and longest) set of revisions for the book. Once those are done, I can start pestering agents again. (I have a feeling some of them will have two queries from me for two different books at the same time...) My pitch is almost done, but I feel like it's not quite perfect yet. So yes, if you're willing to give it a gander, shoot me an email (CNHolmberg (at) gmail (dot) com)!

  1. Hey lady, shoot me an email if you want me to take a look at your pitch :)

  2. Hey, you used a link I showed you! Glad you enjoyed it.

  3. Want to buy our microwave??! It's only a year and a half old and works awesomely!

    1. Our microwave is actually pretty new, we just need the cart to put it on. ;) But thanks!
