Totally Freaking Out!

I have been unable to sleep or sit down since the mail came yesterday. I got a letter from the agent I sent my query letter regarding my nonfiction book and HE WANTS TO SEE THE SAMPLE CHAPTERS AND PROPOSAL!!!!

Its a long way from that seat next to Oprah but at least its a step in the right direction.

Last night, amidst the tossing and turning I actually had a dream about a fellow blogger. I was at a convention (what kind?? Couldn't tell but it didn't look like Vegas and it was mainly women and not a bunch of insurance salesman in bad suits looking for hookers - not that I have ever had that dream either) and I knew I was meeting an agent who wanted to see my work. The agent was none other than our own TB of Soul Gardening. She was the agent that wanted to read my work and can I say she was just as cute in my dream as in her pictures!

When I woke up at 4 am I couldn't get back to sleep. My husband being the wonderful man that he is went running with me. We hit the pavement at 4:20 and put in 3 miles.

I have a friend editing my stuff right now (she has been published a few times and is a really good editor!) and I should have it back by tomorrow and then I can send it to the agent!!

Also, Congrats to my frequent commentor, constant supporter, and also very good editor, TLC. She is a hot, sexy grandma as of last night. Miss Emily is adorable!!


  • Good Luck Debbie!! That is very exciting. Keep me posted!

  • Oh wow! That is great news. Congratulations.
    And while I would be thrilled to be your agent, you may want representation from someone who actually knows how to sell a book. All I can sell is auto glass ;o)

    Last night I dreamed that James Taylor hit on me while I was backstage at a concert and I convinced Jeff that it was a good thing for me to go home with him.

  • That's amazing news! Congrats. Now... *Puts on glasses and pulls out clipboard* Perhaps TB was in your dream as a way of putting a friendly face on a scary process. Hmmm?

  • Thanks for all the kind words, guys!

    Tink - you kill me, interpreting my dreams.

    TB - you could soooo be my agent.

    V-Grrrl - I will definately need help pulling together my Oprah outfits, when the time comes.

    Thanks again!!

  • That's so strange! I had a dream about a blogger conference, too. No, it wasn't the "I'M TOO SEXY FOR MY PANTS BLOGHER CONFERENCE" in the Bay Area this summer. It know...the other one. were my roommate and we were trying to find the other bloggers. I don't know what it means since the night before I dreamed about my mother holding a big pot of soup over her head. Help me.

    Anywhooo, Congratulations! Of course, being a published author does not relinquish you from your blogging duties.

  • I am ever the cautious forager... Can you tell me who you sent it to? There is a pile of renowned scammers out there. Did you check up on this person on Predators and Editors? (Don't wanna pop yer bubble, but really, if it wasn't a good thing, wouldn't you like to know NOW??)If they are legit, then, GREAT!
