From Livejournal, on October 9th, 2010 ----
So...I started querying ALTERED on Monday.
Immediately, I got two requests for a full. Then three partial requests. Then two of those partials turned into fulls. And today I got an offer.
I GOT AN OFFER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It doesn't seem real. Because I've been working toward this for five years. And suddenly in a matter of days I have an agent offering to represent me. And several other agents that promised to start reading immediately.
I just can't wrap my head around this. And I always thought that once I got that offer, everything else would be a breeze. But now suddenly I'm like what if Agent A is like...you know what...I'm not sure why I ever offered to rep this girl. She's crazy! Or what if I chose the wrong agent? Or what if we go out on submission and NO ONE will buy the book. Or someone will buy the book and then I'll blow it on the revisions and no one will ever hear about the book because it'll be like Lindsey Lohan's I Know Who Killed Me that only released in like two theaters. (Can you tell I'm in total angst mode? Which is ridiculous, because this should be THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE [which it is---minus the stress]).
I don't want to say too much until I make a final decision. But everyone promised to let me know by next Wednesday. It can't come soon enough!
