Obviously, what I've been posting online is a long way from being a novel as it now stands. So this means I'll need to put a lot of work into fleshing it out, filling in the details of the setting and characters, working out the kinks in the plot, polishing the prose, and generally turning it into a respectable - and publishable - piece of writing. And when I get to that stage, I'll start looking for editorial input and suggestions.
First though, I want to get the story finished. I'm still writing TQC as entertainment and I want it to be fun to read. (I'm having fun writing it.) After that, the real work begins.
Mostly I'm happy with the way it's going so far. There are a few things I'm not happy with (the plot device where Dess "just happens" to spot the creepy bronzed egg in Sestris' apartment is *unbearably* contrived) but the freedom to do stuff like that is what allows me to feel comfortable enough to keep writing.
Anyway, here is the link to The Queen's Courtesan.
