I've received two requests for fulls, but I'm not totally comfortable putting who they're from. Most of you know or can figure it out...I don't know. Guess there's just something I have about jinxing it if I write it out in a public forum! I'll definitely add the names if/when I get a rejection or *gasp*...something else! Till then:

2 fulls out
A Touch Mortal
A Touch Morbid
A Touch Menacing
Vial Things

But those are pretty good stats, just the same. You heard fast. I've been dangling for ages.

I've received ZERO rejections!

Ah hem, of course I've sent out ZERO queries at this point...


Gotta finish the manuscript first.

It's been a week and three days since the agent who has my full told me she "loves it" and asked me if I was still interested in representation. I told her I was and she said she still had to finish reading the ms and would get back in a few days with a "definite answer".

So I wait.
