At 11.56 AM, after much prayer and worry and my husband telling me to 'just do it'--I sent my information and request to an agent. Several friends assured me what I already thought about this first choice as an agency--that they are satisfied and happy with it.

So now I join the ranks of those of you who are pursuing an agent to help get your book out there in the marketplace. How many more requests will I have to send out? Will I be whining in two months when the rejections start trickling in?

Probably all of the above--but I feel good about trying. And in the end--that's all we can do, isn't it?

And now on to other projects. Whew.

Lots of excitement going on over here! Wow, that is great! I can't wait to hear how it goes!

Thank you for your encouraging comments on my blog. You are challenging me in ways I've never thought about.

Woooohooooo! Remember, Stephen King had hundreds and hundreds of rejections and John Grisham self-published his first book and sold it from the trunk of his car.

You've taken the big step. If and when rejections come, just think of them as hurdles you are leaping over to get to the finish line!!

Way to go! I sent a story to Pat and she said I will be notified in December of whether or not they accept it.
