CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope hubby apologized!

Haha!!! I mentioned this to him last night and he looked sheepish. His argument was that he didn't want me to get hurt if she didn't offer.

Sweet, but still. ;-)

And thank you everyone for the congrats.

I wanted to post my story to show others that when you get that R&R, don't let it bring you down, just go for it. Lots of times R&Rs don't work out, sure. But some do. I'm proof.

Best to all!!!!

Abster, my R&R was ultimately a rejection but I have a nice rapport with the agent now and I'm glad. I'm sure her suggestions made my ms what it is, so I will always be grateful to her even though she rejected me!

That rapport will go a long way.

I barely got a R&R from Suzie in 2010. Then, I wrote a whole new book and got another R&R. So, it's a labor of love. You never know what will come of the journey.

But I see you have a publishing contract-- that's KICKASS!!!! Congrats to you, Kimmy! Can't wait to read it!!!

Thanks! And I have to laugh that you included the CoolAid Man in your post. My character Olivia makes a reference to him in my book.  ;D
