AMG Publishers likes "Sword of the Dragon"

It has been nearly a year since AMG Publishers requested Sword of the Dragon and today I received news that made me ecstatic: My manuscript is scheduled for presentation at the next new product meeting! The reader "loved" it! And they "like what you have done" !

This is big, very big! I'm in the door, praise God! As long as everything passes as well at the meeting I should land a contract.

I've sent the acquisitions editor some useful info, now I must continue to write and wait to hear more! This is amazing, it feels wonderful knowing that they feel my manuscript has that much merit!

Sword of the Dragon...must read Sword of the Dragon. Who is Spector and when did HE come into the book??? A war a thousand years ago????? You have been working your imagination and I must read!!! :) :) :) As Kelley said, we are VERY excited for you and so proud. Just to keep you humble though, I have a few pictures of "younger" days! ha ha ha

Speaking of pictures, we also have a video...let's see....what would be a good "black mail"...oops, I mean trade???? Hehehe. Just kidding. :) Don't worry, we'll keep the photos and videos between our families. :) Unless, of course we need to use them....
I was very tempted to start your book yesterday, but I knew I'd get caught up in it so I figured I'd wait until I could actually take it home.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
