excitement and reality

Two requests!  Much happy dancing at my house, scared my cats clear under the bed.

Two of the agents I would most love to have represent my work, like what they've seen so far and have requested that I send more for them to read!

So, I was quick to send off what one asked for,  the first three chapters and a synopsis. As it was already set up and ready to go.

Now I'm preparing the other agent's request for the FULL manuscript. I'll be up to my neck in pages and pages of editing for the next few days, making sure that my work is polished and shining before I send it to her.

This will be the first time that anyone has read the whole story. So I'll be on pins and needles. Oh, did I mention that it sometimes takes up to six months to hear back from an agent? The jeopardy theme song could get very old by then. 

In the meantime, I'll get this baby out to my patient, kind and loving   beta readers. You know who you are so get ready to read by the end of the month!

back to work ....


  1. Now that's the kind of good news worth sharing. Good luck with both agents.

  2. Congrats! Happy editing with a fabulous goal in site. :)
