And Away We Go!

Up until this weekend, I've been so busy with revisions that I haven't looked up from them, or looked ahead. I haven't really allowed myself to think about WHY I'm doing them, or about the next step. Just too busy...

Well, yesterday, I submitted the final changes to my agent, and his response today was that he would look them over, and then --- he'd send them to a publisher! This week! Maybe even in the next couple of days!! He even called her by name (someone he's already contacted and told about my series - she sounded very interested!).

I mean, duh, I realize this is the next logical stage in the process, the one I've been waiting for, hoping for. But it wasn't until I saw that email that I really got it. That my work will be seen by a publisher. An actual publisher. Very, very soon. Umm, wow!

Away we go!

P.S. - though I'll try not to center every single blog entry around this new agent/publisher situation, I plan to keep y'all posted on stuff - even the rejections! Who knows what lies ahead - more waiting and heartache and frustration? Probably. But it's all part of this writing journey I'm on, and I welcome every single bit of it! ;-)


  1. So exciting. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!

  2. Woohooooooo! How exciting! I'm enjoying your journey; please do keep us posted.

  3. Aww, thanks, y'all!! Much appreciated! I'll take all the good luck I can get! I'm so excited, but still so realistic. I don't wanna get my hopes too high...

    Thanks, Deb, for saying that - I'm always afraid I'm boring people with my agent entries, lol. But I do think ANY writer's journey is a fascinating one, and I know I love reading about how other people's journeys are going, too...
