The Children of Loki is now a complete science fiction novel. Presently I am seeking literary agent representation and a good publishing contract.
There are mixed reports from other authors about how hard or easy it is the first time. I have met authors who did have their very first novel published by a respectable publishing company without an agent and other authors who wrote loads of novels, then turned to self publishing in the hope of making any money from all their work. That is far from the whole story of how it works. I’ve heard of people landing a great contract on their 5th novel, or that after becoming famous customers aka FANS will buy all that stuff the author wrote while still being scoffed at.
I would prefer to land a contract that gets it released by 2015 but there is no guarantee. This makes 2 novels so far by this author. Expect more.
