Another non-day.

This isn't a habit, this is spending the day editing the 2005 "Beasts and Angels" because a New York editor wanted to see three chapters. Not just any NY editor, but a friend of Miss Snarks.

I spent the day doing that and then sent it off, expecting the usual rejection letter but no. She really likes it. She wants it re-written to a more linear plot but Hell she said "You're a great writer and I want to see more."

Of course I'll re-write it.

Actually no; I sent in a speck query and she forarded it for me.

Wow! that's fantastic news. You must be thrilled.
I haven't really considered finding an agent, but I guess that eventually I'll have to start sending out letters etc. It kind of terrifies me.

I'm in a complete panic about it! I've been sending out queries for four of my books but never had a bite before. I got to the point where I stopped worrying about rejections. This is the first 'bite' I've ever had.
