I finally have resurrected Blood Divided, the prequel/sequel to the vampire book I had published way back in 1989. Even after all these years, this story is wonderful. I read it and could hardly believe I wrote it. I have typed it all back into the computer (in 89 I did it on a typewriter) and am ready to submit it to the publisher here at the newspaper. I don't know if they will want to print it or not, but I'm bound and determined to give it a try. If they reject it, I will start shopping around for other publishers.

It is NOT a teen angst ridden novel. But it does give a full and satisfying vampire experience.

Wish me luck.

Good luck! How long until you know if they accept the book? What was the name of the book you wrote in 1989?

Did you think of re-releasing the first one, too? Hook some "new blood"... :D

I don't own the rights to the first one. I've contacted the publisher twice now about getting them back (the rights) but they don't reply, which really pisses me off. I guess I would need to get a lawyer, or I'm hoping that if my publisher here at the paper wants to pursue it, they could do it :)

Anyway, I have set the project on his desk. I was physically shaking as I did it. I'm so nervous about it. I'm not nervous about rejection... I can't tell you how many times my work has been rejected, I'm actually more nervous because these are people I work with. If that makes sense.

Supposedly I will know one way or the other in about 10 days.
