I'm still here

Back by popular demand - okay, one comment - just letting my fan(s) know that I'm still alive. I've been silent because I haven't had any breaking news. I could write about my knitting - I finally finished my adaptation of that sweater from Barney's and mine is more gorgeous. I could say that Jeff Bridges has finally gotten the recognition he deserves. But you don't care about that.

I sent Amy, my book doctor, the revision at 7:00 a.m. on February 26th. Believe it or not, I forgot to ask her when she might be finished. Note to self: Email Amy immediately.

I'm starting to gather agent info, reviewing my list of people I submitted to before, and ordering a subscription to Publisher's Weekly, which sends out a daily newsletter listing agent deals. I've also rewritten my query letter - what an author sends an agent describing her book - in case (fat chance) some agent might get mine and say, "Hmmm, didn't I pass on this two years ago?"

Next time you hear from me, I will have had Amy's reaction to my rewrite. Stay tuned.


  1. You have the patience of a saint, Andrea. You didn't ask when she might/would be finished! If it were me, she would find me sleeping on her porch in the morning, every morning. Hoping with you for great news. Be well.

  2. I'd rather read about your imminent relationship with Alec Baldwin.
