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.

Oh Ghostie, I am SOOO excited for you!! Good news from my writing friends is always cause for celebration. I will do a happy dance here in the coffee shop, and have another muffin in your honor.

Can't wait to read it, and hear more about your adventure. See what happens when you stop writing KBS and follow your heart??

Might see you next month, if you're around - I'll send you mail.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Yippee skippy!!

Thank you, BB Beth! Kind of like buying a new house (and I am so hoping you are enjoying yours!) -- nothing is for sure until the paper is signed. But I'm still rather ecstatic. :-)

Mere congratulations won't cut it. Only other writers completely understand what an accomplishment you've achieved in the face of overwhelming odds. Way to go!
