I'm so thrilled with the responses I got to my pitches in this weekend's WIP It Good Blogfest!  Ever since I first had the idea for Stumped, I've been worried people wouldn't want to read it.  I mean, a book about sex and disability is always going to be kind of a difficult sell.  Especially when the main character is as witty and profane as Ozzy.

But seeing so many positive comments has given me more confidence in the story.  I feel like it's about 80% there now, so a few more tweaks and polishes should have it ready for querying. Which is nerve wracking.  And means I need to get off my ass and write a synopsis.

I guess maybe it will be a few weeks before I get onto writing that new book I've been thinking about.  I know that if I start writing something new, I won't get onto sending Stumped out.  And I think I need to do that.

So thank you to everyone who was so positive about my crazy little book.  You've given me some much needed confidence.


  1. I didn't comment on the concept for your book seems pretty original. I haven't heard of anything like it. Good luck with it. It is scary..,trying something new. You'll be fine. Stay encouraged.

  2. Don't give in to the allure of the new idea! Stumped sounded smart and original--I don't even have to look back to remember which one it was. It really stuck in my head.

  3. Good luck for when you start querying!

  4. Glad you got some good responses. Good luck with your next round of queries!

  5. It's a great story Kate, and Ozzy is such a fun character from what I've read so far... got to read more:)
