I want to bring everyone up to date on where we are in the Oh, Please, God, PLEASE let-me-get-my-book-published effort.
Things are looking pretty good!
Remember the first day of Dr. Schneider’s Violence and Human Nature class (we all now know it should have been named the Violence and almost always Male Nature class) and we all told what our daytime job was and Hank was an anesthesiologist and flew helicopters on life-saving missions and Michele kept Rice University grounded and in the top-fifty and Roswitha was in charge of preparing world-dominating companies for potential Armageddon-like scenarios all our other classmates had equally intimidating life-trajectories and I said I scrubbed potties for a living and it turned out I was the only one there who scrubbed potties for a living?
Okay, I’m still in charge of the potties here but now if we were all to go around the table and tell our life trajectories I would answer that I scrub potties for a living AND that my 70,000 word novel Standing On the Promises is being represented by one of the most ferociously accomplished agents in New York City (Janet Reid, www.jetreidliterary.blogspot.com — check out her award-wining blog — it’s fantastic) and has gone out to publishers as of last week.
Soooo. That’s all good. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Say a prayer. I’m doing both.
