I'm Baaaack!!!!

OMG! This past week was so utterly, totally, wildly, positively AMAZING that I hardly know where to begin. First of all, being a complete dork, I accidentally left my laptop at home. That turned out to be a good thing, however, since it caused me to focus strictly on the task at hand.

BEA was beyond miraculous. I pitched one-on-one to six agents, and all six asked for sample pages. That day was right up there with my wedding day, the days my kids were born, and all the times I've performed live with my band. That's how mega-spectacular it was. And Backspace rocked as well. I'm keeping this short, since I have a lot of sample pages to get out. There's a particularly wonderful agent who asked me for a full, so that's at the top of my list. I promise I'll write a complete update late tomorrow or Wednesday including pics. Until then, know I love and miss you all toooooo much.

(Sorry, I don't mean to be a tease. But being the anal-retentive freak that I am, I have to read through my ms one more time before I send it out. PLEASE understand!!!! Hugs to all...)

Debra! Do not read this comment! You should be poring over that MS with fanatical and feverish intensity... hey, are you still reading? Seriously, stop!

Yahoo!! Don't fret too much - send those pages. And, please, do tell more when you get a chance.

I thought of you a lot the past few days ... haven't gone to Target yet, but now I have an excuse!!

That was one thought, the other was for a story I want to write ... it is more like a profile, and I don't know 'how' to start it. I am going to interview the guy, take some notes, then put what I can together.

Congrats on all the positive feed back that you got!

Hello everyone! I've been working on my ms all day and I'm only half-way done! I'm making small changes, but it still takes a lot of time and attention. I'll be sending my full out sometime tomorrow, so I'll post like a normal person again on Thursday. Thanks for your encouraging thoughts, words, and prayers. I don't take them lightly. Peace, love, and good health to all, Debbie;-)

Hopefully you made it through. I wanted to change everything and nothing. Crazy, huh? I swear if there were worry points, I'd be Tiger Magic Jordan. But post some more! I want to hear how everything went afterwords, pitching, the next few day. Everything.
