No, I haven’t died or anything. I’ve just been busy. But I have a few tidbits of promising news to share.
First, a few weeks ago The Knight Agency did a contest via their blog where they were looking for new talent. I randomly got picked as one of the 125 people who got to send 3 pages of their manuscript. Then I got picked in the top 25. I got to send ten pages. Then I got picked in the top 15. I got to send three chapters. I did not make the top 3, but I was still very encouraged.
Second, I’ve had two full requests so far on my manuscript. I’ve already gotten a rejection on one. The second agent emailed me, apologized for the time it had taken, and asked if I’d found representation yet or if they could have more time. So, there’s still hope. And there’s still agents I haven’t heard anything from. Fingers crossed.
