I was checking my email inbox for a totally unrelated reason and guess what??
Okay, I won't make you guess.
I got my first ever request for a partial on my manuscript!!!!! (yes, all those exclamation points are, in fact, necessary)
I really, really wasn't expecting a response from this agent so soon. She states on her website that they try to answer queries within a couple weeks, and I only sent her my email yesterday. I was so shocked I had to read the email twice in order to make myself believe it. And when I DID understand that it was a request for more ... I may or may not have giggled like a little girl.
Now I'm all jittery inside. It's a good jittery, but jittery nonetheless.
I know I still need to send more queries, and prepare myself for the very real possibility that she'll pass on the partial. But after the query hell I put myself through for two months it feels so good to know I was able to snag someone's attention. :o)
I think I'll let myself soak in the adrenaline high for another hour, and then get back to the grindstone.
Thank you guys for letting me post a pointless - Happy Dance - post!!!! (Okay, so those exclamation points weren't necessary, but I like the way they look)
