I’ve been working through another edit of Blanc Noir. With it’s modern social themes and satirical character names (Koch, Boehner, Limbaugh), I think it could win an audience. More importantly, I think it could motivate people to make society better.
Conventional wisdom says to go through a few drafts before submitting a book to agents. I have no problem with that.
My heart says I need to get this story in front of people. My instincts say my writing is stronger here than with the bulk of my other works.
I don’t see any reason to wait. There will be more revisions, but I have something functional here. Why shouldn’t I pursue it as soon as I can?
