The Waiting Game Begins . . .

I told you all this post was coming.

My book is going out tomorrow. Jodi sent me her submission list this afternoon and, let me tell you, it is impressive.

It must be a mistake.

No, really, I'm working really hard to convince myself this is real. You should see this list. Some major, major players in the fantasy world. I am so stoked!

So the last really big waiting game begins tomorrow. I know there is always more waiting in the publishing industry, but at least after this one there's a contract involved.;)

I am calm, I am patient. I am calm, I am patient. I am calm, I am patient.

(Are you convinced?)

Ciao!!

Hey,
I'm in the same boat. My book was sent out 2/20. I've been staring at the wall saying "I'm not thinking about my submission," since then.

Good luck. I'll shortly be in the same boat. My agent is going through my revisions and I'm hoping to hear back any moment that my novel is going on submission.
