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! ;-)
