PIGS on Submission

I was going to blog about nothing. but Megan Rebekah already did that.

So, now I will have to blog about something. And that something is called How Much I Love My New Agent. (Yes, I am still reading too much Junie B.)

I love my new agent. She is awesome. She actually reads my emails and responds. She even calls (Okay, I know I am going to get ticketed by the blog police big time because this could imply that I once had an agent who didn't call, but it is NOT my fault if you leap to all sorts of crazy conclusions on your own.)

I spoke with Awesome Agent on Thursday and she said PIGS is ready to go! So she is sending it out to a couple of houses that she thinks might have interest and she is also sending updated drafts to the editors who already have it.

Now I just have to wait for responses. I'd better ask Jesus to give me patience. That waiting business is hard work!

Such fun news! I love it when there's a big pile of HOPE out there. And, how great to have an awesome agent to keep you up to date on all the nibbles and interest.

Patience? Ha! Pace, chew your nails, check your email forty thousand times a day . . . even Jesus can't help you with this. Roll with it.

There are blog police? (ha!)

I recommend distracting yourself -- start another story!

So, I clicked on the Jesus link because I *had* to see if the Lord had his own blog. You never know.

Congrats on all the good stuff that's going on!

Yes, the waiting game is the toughest part of this business. I'm glad you found a great agent. I'm hoping to be able to say the same about whichever agent I manage to land!
