Today the manuscript went to Cedar Fort Publishing. It is a bit of a long story, but Kirk Shaw at Covenant Communications was very complimentary on my writing style and the general storyline found in the synopsis, and although he wanted to read the entire manuscript, I think he must have gotten a bit overwhelmed by all of the great submissions he got after the LDS Storymakers conference. I can’t blame him there. He did say that I could try again if I changed the setting of my story to “Old-Testament Israel” rather than another planet. Covenant is fairly conservative about that kind of thing.
Well, the whole point of the story is that it is on another planet. I could make the setting change and still create a good story with it, but maybe later. I am going to run this thread to the end and see if I get any takers as it stands. If not, Kirk will hear from me again.
So wish me luck. I now get to wait a few months to hear back from CFI. Time to get working on my other project and see if I can get that one done. It is time to write again!
