A Quiet Space to Build a Dream.



I just sent my book out to agents.


Remember that one time when I wrote a novel and a bunch of you guys asked if you could read it, and I said not until it is published? Well someday I really will let you read it. Because I've spent the last 2 months editing it backward and forward, and yesterday I sent out my queries.


Basically that means that my work is officially out there....and now I wait. The agents I'm most interested in take anywhere from weeks to months to respond to queries, so I'm in for a while holding my breath.... But I'm feeling really happy and confident.


I love this book - it's unique, beautiful, and sometimes scary. I read a lot of books, and I honestly believe that this is better than the majority of what I've read lately (and I am a little envious of the books that are better than mine).


It's really a matter of finding the right agent who understands my work...and that may take some patience and some rejection here and there. But I'm certain that I will find that person.


.......So now you know what's been keeping me busy in my mysterious internet absence!
