I’m back! I was in sunny, breezy San Francisco and am now back in the ol’ Texas oven. Here’s a cliff view from Ocean Beach.
I’ll have some more pics for you later in the week, once I’m organized.
While I was out there, though, I got an email from an agent requesting a partial. Only problem is, he wanted an exclusive partial. I had to write him and tell him that other agents are currently looking at my book, and he said he’d take a look if all the others came back with a no.
I’ve never gotten an exclusive partial request before and thought I never would again, however…
Once safely aground at home, I discovered I had a phone message…from an agent…requesting an exclusive partial.
I was enormously excited that an agent actually called me, another thing that has never happened to me before. I was very nervous about having to call him back. (I don’t do well on the phone at the best of times. Without visual cues, I tend to start talking over the other person.) But in his message, he said he would email me, so that’s how I replied. Whew. He also said he would look at the material if all the others came back no. That’s heartening and disappointing all at once. I mean, I’m glad they’re interested, but I have to wade through a few no’s to get to their interest. Ah well. I’ll think of them as a safety net. ^_^
How was your weekend? Did you miss me? Awww, I thought so. Do any of you actually live in sunny Cal? Any writing news I missed?
