Breath held….fingers crossed…..


Peeps….it has happened….I finally got a response from a literary agent that wasn’t a reject letter!  It’s true!  I mean, at least I don’t think this is a dream…..I keep checking to see if the email is still in my box…it is….it’s right there in black and white.  So it must be real…right?  She asked for the first 10 pages.  Heart drops.  Are my first 10 pages good enough to make her want the rest?  It’s almost worse than getting a reject letter!  Now I must wait to see if I’m good enough in 10 pages to be asked for the remaining 70 pages!  This is going to kill me!  I almost fell out of bed yesterday morning when I casually scanned through my email snuggled under my covers in the early morning hours.  My husband ran to my rescue when he heard me gasp loudly.  I scrambled for my glasses so that I could make sure I had read it correctly!  I did.  It was right there in black and white!  One small drop of validation.  Let’s pray that drop doesn’t dry up in a matter of minutes!!!

  1. Update…..just as I suspected….I wasn’t good enough in 10 pages to be asked for the remaining 80 pages of my book. Oh well….that drop of validation dried up fast!
