The Agent-Query Dance

Lots of changes happening of late on the Ana Lee Kennedy writing front. I'm returning to the original genres that I wrote years ago. Hindsight reveals that I should never have left women's fiction and magical realism, but I was talked into jumping onto the erotic romance bandwagon. In all honesty, all my most popular works are the ones that are *not* erotic romance.

That's not to say that I will never write erotic content or romance again. There are occasions in writing where erotic content works well. Also, women's fiction often incorporates romance into it.

The difference is that the romance isn't the sole focus of the plot.

Thirdly, as well as sadly, I've parted ways with my literary agent, so now I'm back to researching and querying agents, something I haven't had to do for about 15 years. And I'm not a patient person either, lol. After 32 years of experience in this business, it's difficult for me to have to do the agent-query dance again, but here I am.

I'm trying to finish up the latest erotic romance manuscript I have in progress. I'm down to the last 5K to 10K words then it will be in the publisher's hands. Well, maybe. I may just sit on it. Not sure how I feel about this manuscript right now. Lots of sex in it, that's for sure.

I love my Werewolves of Rebellion books, but I think Puppy's story may have to go on a backburner until I struggle through this new and improved but sometimes difficult to handle outlook on publishing as a whole. However, I have started a new women's fiction manuscript, so that makes me happy. It feels RIGHT. :-D

For now, I'm back to peddling one of my works--of which there are four full completed manuscripts--to literary agents and praying for some good news before the New Year!

That's all for now, dear readers. Please take a moment to investigate my books. Until next time! <3
