In this issue: how chatGPT has already changed my life as an author and when not to email an agent plus other querying tips.
You’ve wowed me once again, my friend! I learned some pretty cool things about you and about the bigger world of publishing our words just now. Thank you! Congrats on the upcoming book!
I would read the shit out of that Sylvia Plath novel!
Happy to see you move over to Substack for this newsletter too and thank you for shouting out my piece! I also love the Sylvia book idea and have come to a similar conclusion about the AI stuff -- I want to try to write the things the chatbot can't write :)
Hello Andromeda - It is nice to reconnect with you. I look forward to your "retake" on the life on Slyvia Plath. Now, I am working on my 5th novel. The first four have been independently published, and this one will be too. I don't like the idea of agents or selling books, but I love to write. For the last six months I have been working on my "Montana Essays," which are really about anything I am interested in that day. Much of what I write in them can be used in my work-in-progress, entitled "Falls of the Missouri." Enjoy your island! I am also lucky enough to live in a place, surrounded by mountains, that I love. Unfortunately, it also boasts of long, hard winters (reminiscent of my memories of Alaska).
