And Now, The Waiting Game

Well, I made my first submission to an agent!  It's exciting and nerveracking at the same time.  After finishing the entire manuscript and combing over it tirelessly for stupid mistakes (I was up 'til 4 am Saturday double-checking that each period had two spaces after it instead of one), I finally decided it was finished and ready.  And I'm glad to say that I'm really proud of it.  Heck, I better be; it's been three years in the making, from concept to completion--pre-published completion, that is.

I became facebook friends with the agent last week (I met him at the conference) and he said to go ahead and email him directly with the first 30 pages, instead of going through their submission form, so I was really grateful for that.  Now let's just hope he likes my book!
