Well, apparently (surprisingly?) taking action can bring results.
In other words,
I HAVE AN AGENT!!!!!!!!
That doesn't mean I have a publisher, but it's a start. I found someone who liked the manuscript enough to want to pitch it to publishers, which is more than I could say a few months ago.
It's a process, though. There will be some edits, I'm sure, probably not until the beginning of next year, but I've already started thinking about them. Along with what comes next.
Did I mention, I'm EXCITED?????
This is what happens when you finally face down the fear that what you've done might not be good enough. What's the worst that could have happened -- rejection letters? I got a number of those, but I also got one that said "yes." And that makes all the difference.
