Done for Now

About five minutes ago I emailed the revised novel off to my agent. That means I don't have to look at the ms for a while, and that's a relief. I can finish reading some things, maybe do a bit of research and planning for the next book, and stew while I wait for my agent's comments. I have, frankly, no idea what he'll come back with. We'll see, I suppose.

  2. Congrats.

    Now, 5 hours ago (according to Blogger, this is when your post went up), at least for me, would be about 2:30 AM! Dang, talk about dedication! I hope you had lots of caffeine to keep you going. Best of luck.

  6. Well cone, Scott! (I think that should be our new insider speak.) Congratulations! I'm very excited for you.

  7. Charlie: Thanks! I can't believe I actually got to this point.

    Justus: Hah. A couple times I've emailed Mr. Agent just to make sure he remembers who I am. "Don't worry," he says. "You're on my radar." I still worry.

    Scott: Behold the power of Irish Breakfast black tea. But we must be in different time zones, because it was 10:21 PM when I sent my book off. I slept very well last night.

    Ann: I can't wait for the next round of agent suggestions, and then all the work the publisher's editor will generate!

    Justus and Davin: Well cone, all of us, for being Mighty Writers! I can't decide if I'm excited or simply relieved.

  8. If you get bored before starting the new ms, you're most welcome to revise mine. That is, if you like women's fiction. :) Congrats!

  9. Angie: It tempts, because I'm always looking for something to read, but right now I am possessed by Davin Malasarn's wonderful unpublished novel Rooster, which is so much better than my book. He'd better get an agent soon. Thanks for the congratulations!

  10. Lame. You and Davin are out to shame me. Must I live in ignominy?!

  11. Ignominy? I thought you lived in Arkansas. But be patient, Nephs. Your time will come.

  12. Patient? I can't type without a cane!
