(Conflict-free) Diamonds, flowers, cupcakes ... yes, all the above make my heart go a'flutter. But I'm also an aspiring author which means that partial and full requests make my heart race as well.
I am just ... oh-so-nervous and I know, I know I'm getting my hopes up WAY TOO HIGH, but I can't help myself. I'm excited and nervous and ... no ... I'm not going to throw up, but seriously heart, calm down!
Firebrand held a Query Holiday where they accepted and read over 3,500 first chapters. They only requested a little over 100 full manuscripts. Yup, I am one of the uberly lucky 3%. A part of me just wants to be grateful and I am (!) but ... can I also be an itsy bitsy hopeful as well? So far, Firebrand has extended two offers with one acceptance. I hope they don't stop extending offers. Yes, I hope that I get a golden ticket.
You can read all about it here from Firebrand Agent Nadia Cornier's blog.
Seriously. Can't. Stop. Dreaming.
Am I one of those "bring into meetings" manuscripts? Will I be???
I'll keep you posted - good or bad, I promise.
