Whats Jackie doing today?

It's friday - high aspirations.
Last night Chad Savage returned my mail and he is officially building my horror/lesbian gore website.
You want to see Chad's work?
He has an amamzing sense of darkness and his perception of things that go bump in the night is uncanny.
My new website after many long meetings and arguements with the boss,(me), has been settled upon:
Afterall, a writers name becomes their brand. Its the way people search for their work and websites when they want info. It makes sense because of my daft sounding name to have a site entitled after it.
Chad and I chatted at length about it. I feel real good about what he's going to do. It will include a 'lady love' page for my links and partners and not least of all my Lesbian thriller novel - THE GIRLS CLUB.
WITNESS: THE WHITE VOLUME - the edits are back and with the publisher. Pray for me. I need that book to make the impression it deserves on the marketplace. I feel almost virginal about the whole thing. Trawling the net and online shops is very different. Suddenly it's going to be there. People can pick it up locally and suddenly they will want to know if I pull the wings off flies in my spare time.
Its going to be odd - but I welcome these things as all change is good.
I have purchased a copy of 'The Writers and Artists Yearbook 2007' - it's my aim to put together an attractive portfolio with which to seek an agent.
I've done the applying online which has always been met with rejection.
I think I'm going back to basics on that matter. Pen and paper. I started initially by sending out stuff by postal mail and to save time and effort went into more online ventures. Just because its easier. The results really have been poor and I think that just reflects how easy it is to. The quality of the applications has slipped.
The book itself on flicking through has things like all agents, newspaper groups and their addresses! Publishers, advice from established authors.
Reasonably priced too. We independant writers spend enough money - am I right?
Things to do:
Portfolio for myself
Portfolio for each of the three books I have written
Application letter to be drafted for agent submission
Application letter to be drafted for each novel submission
It's getting serious now.
