40+ is Fabulous!
Had to share my recent agent news here on the Hen Lit blog. Yesterday I received a response from an agent who loved the 40-something character in "Real Women Wear Red." She said she was fabulous! So, of course, I am feeling especially fabulous. Doesn't even matter if she felt the project wasn't the right one for her. I am still feeling fabulous - and it gets better. Today I received an agent request for a full. You just never know about those SASEs that show up in your mailbox. Sometimes it's a no and sometimes it's a go. Along the path to becoming a published author, we must celebrate our successes. And so I will enjoy a nice Australian red tonight and focus on the present.

Dorothy, it was a different agent. And to follow up - she wanted an exclusive but NEXT already had a requested full and she didn't want me to send the full until after NEXT made its decision.

You mean the one we both went with...if she gets back, she's going to want an exclusive? So if she does get back to me, then I shouldn't query NEXT? Hm...decisions, decisions. The agency is my dream agency, but if NEXT were to say "Hey, I want your book," I'm sure as hell not going to turn them down. Ha. If NEXT wants your mss, I'd say go for it. If I were in your shoes, I wouldn't think twice. ;o)
