So I’ve got characters I love, and characters I hate as much as they’re meant to be hated.  I’ve got a solid story that has had more than a reasonable amount of research done to it (I think scouting out pics of the inside of a Canadian grocery store in a town of 200 in the middle of nowhere is a little beyond reasonable).  My betas are loving it.  Reviews on the sites I’ve posted chapters to have have been great.  So why am I feeling discouraged?  Aside from three agent rejections since the first of the year.  Why am I doubting this novel?  What can I do to not feel like I’m wasting my time?

Right this moment it’s only the words of a couple friends that are preventing me from scrapping Sacred Blood.
