I've Got a Map, AND First 200 Words Contest

I've been revising, that's old news. But this week I've been polishing. As I've mentioned before, I got a request for the first 100 pages of my ms at a conference I attended in May. The agent is on submission hiatus until Monday. I'm sending my pages tomorrow.

So I've been tweaking the ever-living stuffing out of this thing for the last few days. One of my beta readers is tardy in returning my pages because he's moving across country (lame excuse, Greg) and I'm checking the mailbox every 2.5 seconds. But, aside from anything earth shattering I get from Greg, I'm done.*

So, late last night, I drew a map of BookEnd. Sorry, I can't seem to stop the top from being cropped in the scan.

Here it is:

It's missing some stuff, but it's generally accurate. What do you think?

And HEY! I'm a finalist in the GUTGAA First 200 Words Contest. Much love to Deana for setting it up. Fingers crossed!

*I'm done with the shiny first 100 pages. I can polish the remaining 250 pages ad infinitum.


  1. Awesome job! I love the map. It's really good. Good luck!

  2. Hurrah! So glad you also received ANOTHER request. Live the dream. :)

  3. I LOVE your map. I have a map for my WIP a too. I'm a visual writer and I like to see where people are going. Congrats on the 10 finalists :)

  4. That is a very cool map, Magpie.

    I have a blog award for you over at my blog when you're there next!

  5. @ E.R King, Alleged Author, Alex- thanks for the virtual high fives. July's been good to me.

    @Angie - I'd love to see your map - is it on your blog? let me know.
