Thanks to the wonderful San Francisco Heart to Heart competition I now have an opportunity to submit my manuscript to an interested editor. Cue paralysing nerves.... must get the finishing touches done.
I've been reading Maria V. Snyder's Storm Glass and am very impressed. Something she's done well that i need to keep in mind is to create questions in my mind, ones i turn the page to find out. THAT's what I want to do for my reader.
But how to strike the right balance between keeping the reader wanting answers but not having them throw the book at the wall cos it doesn't make any sense?
