Junction needs more work, and I need your help
Well nuts. The first-round publishers have all rejected Junction. The feedback from them consistently faults characterization. The characters just don’t click with them.
There are more publishers out there, but before I start submitting again, I have to revise. I have to fix those characters. Here’s my plan so far, and I’d appreciate your advice on all of it:
1) work through exercises on characterization do you guys know any good ones?
2) draw the characters (which helped in previous books. Plus, it’s therapeutic if you’ve read Junction, how do YOU picture the characters?
3) read through the whole book again (I have to do that on my own)
4) and of course, get help from beta-readers…gamma-readers? Are you interested in reading a book about exploring a series of hostile alien environments? Also political intrigue and murder?
If so, send me a message and I’ll send you Junction in your preferred format. With your help, the world can come to know the wonder of the Dire Shmoo.
