Alive and HAPPY... and Just a Little Wet
Recently I spent five minutes on the phone trying to breathe while simultaneously peeing my pants. My agent called to tell me a publisher has made an offer for my novel of mostly dead people.
The contract is being negotiated by people who know how to do that. I don't want to jinx anything, so I'm waiting a bit to say anything more.
Needless to say, I am as excited as all get out. :-)
This is the most positive turn of events imaginable for anyone who sits alone day after day and week after week and, yes, month after month, writing a book-length work of fiction on the mere hope that someone some day might read it.
