Just checking in

If you didn’t hear it through other channels, the agent who requested pages passed on the project.

I spent about twelve hours crushed, because the agent in question was Sara Megibow, who is awesome in many ways, and I was really hoping she’d share my enthusiasm for the book and want to work with me.  Ah well.

In any case, I’m moving on. Instead of working on Book 2 without a contract, I’m working on a new story, in another universe.  Still space opera, but a different playground and focus.

The Widening Gyre is still being sent out to agents, and it’s still at Angry Robot (where it will no doubt also be rejected, and I knew that going in but hey, nothing ventured and all that), but that universe isn’t going to be my focus for a while.
