Could I Actually Have a Chance?

I’m jumping around the house!

This has definitely been one of the best weeks of my life!

I received a rejection the other day from one agent who had a full on the manuscript Mr. In-The-Closet. Even though it was a ‘no’, the email she sent me was so lovely.

Thank you for sharing your work with me. This is an absolutely
wonderful concept—it's original, fun, and I can see a lot of young
readers liking this--but I’m afraid that this is not quite right for

Then I received another full request on Saturday from a new agent.

Your sample pages are fantastic. I'd like to take a look at the complete ms.

And now, after opening my email, I have another full request from a very VERY good agency. I don’t know if I’m allowed to put the agency’s name, but it was #1 on my agency list. I’m soo happy!

Thanks so much for sending a sample of MR. IN-THE-CLOSET. If you could please attach the full as a Word doc file, I'd love to keep reading.

I’m actually starting to believe that I might have a chance with this. I really REALLY hope that one of these agents like the manuscript. I have 3 partials out as well at the moment, but they seem to be in limbo.


  1. Yay for requests. I want to have your optimism, but all the fulls and partials I have out just make me prepare for a long wait for responses (I've done this before, you see). Sample pages requests, though, are very exciting :D
