I sort of dropped off the face of the earth last week. There were some crazy distracting events occurring as well as my husband, ever the saint, leaving me for the weekend to chaperone kids at the Model UN conference in the city. (I get that I only had to chaperone one toddler, but those of you that have them understand!) That, plus finally having to put together a submission packet for an agent and I was pretty much down for the count.
There is, however, some good news out of last week. I did receive a request from a nice agent in New York who was interested in reading The Green. YAY! That puts me at 3 NOs, 1 YES-ish, and 4 unanswered queries. I was pretty happy with what I was able to put together and send, much thanks to my critique groups, both live and online, who helped me prepare. I had to send a Bio, 50 pages, a Synopsis and what I call an Additional Project sheet. We were supposed to mention the next book we were planning. I also slipped in my other 2, I figured why not?! At least I feel like this agent will really have a good idea of who I am. We may not be the right match, but that's okay. A YES always pushes me forward! According to his nice email, I should know in about 3 weeks. Which in this world is like overnight!
