When you received an offer, how did they do it?
« on: October 12, 2011, 03:11:39 PM »
Did you get an email asking for a phone call, or just a phone call, or a letter gushing about how great your book is? What did the agent say in the email or call? Looking for happy stories to keep me going!

Email.  I don't remember the exact wording.

The first was an email with guarded praise of my book and asking for a time to talk on the phone.
The second time it was a phone message on my cell, praising the book and looking to talk ASAP.

Both were super-scrumptiously awesome. I hope you get your email/phonecall soon, Kimmy! Fingers crossed for you and all the other QTers out there.  :yes:
