I am clearly among the elite. I think I am behind the power curve (military speak for I need to improve and change something). I have an hypothesis about my poor showing thus far, i.e., the genre I have such an affinity for is a small niche, albeit growing, and therefore because of that the density of favorable responses is small. Perhaps the needed ingredients are perseverance, timing and querying the right agent. Still sounds like a shot in the dark, but being a soldier, that's not a real difficult problem to overcome.

I heard something! She emailed to apologize for the delay! She said she'll be finished by Monday (but who knows if that means she'll email me with her decision.) But at least I can let out my breath until then. Is she nice, or what?! :up:

Ahhhh!!!! I'm so exited for you!!   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:  I'd say the fact that she is voluntarily emailing you with updates means she's pretty dang interested.  Holy cow!!!!  How fun!!!!!!!!!

It's been a week and three days

isn't that part of a lyric?  "it's been a week and three days since i don't know when.." i can hear the song, but can't really place it, except on a classic rock station!

anyway...

YEAH!  i'm glad you have a 'deadline' from her.  god, this is like death by inches, isn't it?  stay strong, girl!

Australian email torture (hint, hint). But damn if it isn't nice torture. Man, if she rejects me after all this I am going to need a massive Koolaid transfusion. And weeks of therapy. And a new wardrobe. And a trip to Disney World! and, and...oh...Yay..I am going to Disney World! On Dec. 21 the fam and I head to Florida until Jan 4th. So I can either bask or sulk in the sun!

oh, do both - bask in your new representation and sulk because she hasn't found a publisher fast enough!

Sooooo... JW is gonna hear back on Monday, which is also Lege's birthday?  Is that right?

Ooooh... I smell a party.

Wait - JW, if it's an Australian Monday, does this mean you're gonna be up 'til all hours Sunday night hitting refresh on your email?  I can see JW posting Chelc-like conversations with herself in the tavern from midnight to 6AM...
