EEEEEEEEEEK!

Guys! (As you read the following, imagine that I am jumping up and down) I heard back from the agent! I heard back from the agent! She read the two chapters where I made the major changes and she said this:

Hi Genevieve,
So sorry it's taken me this long to get back to you! My reading list has been diabolical. But I absolutely loved these pages! If this is the kind of work you're doing on the whole manuscript, I absolutely can't wait to read it. The fight scene is perfect, and Ana's meltdown was wonderful. Completely relatable, and well written.
Hope the rest is coming along well. Be in touch.
Best,
Sarah

Ok, ignore the fact that most of you don't know what the fight scene is about or who Ana is, but you soon may because I'M ALMOST FINISHED EDITING THE BOOK!!!! The major editing, I mean. I know if she signs me on she might ask me to tweak things, as an editor will do as well BUT! she likes it, she really likes it! Yipeeeeeeeeeee! Everyone have another cup of coffee.

Back to the edits.

I'm exhausted, but had to say: Woohoo!!!!!!

Genevieve said...

Thanks dudes! Mel, as soon as I'm done I'll send it to you :) (What is it with my use of emoticons lately?)

Tom, I'm imagined you going, "Woohoooozzzzzzzz" and falling asleep.

Awesome!

Wish Christopher a happy birthday for me. My wisdom tooth got the better of me and I slept all day. But I'm up now! Where's the afterparty?

Thomas Peri said...

Oh, and it's 7:30 as I post this, not 5:30. Blogger is apparently in the Atlantic time zone.

Thomas Peri said...

Did I mention I just woke up? Blogger is apparently in the PACIFIC time zone. California, not Nova Scotia. I'm sure after I post this, I'll post another comment correcting some other mistake.

I'm with Thomas - I was up way later than 10:43. I want credit for being exhausted at a suitable hour. It was 1:43, I guess. Anyway, I pretty much did go "Woohooooooz!" and fall asleep....like I'm going to do right now. Wooozzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Thomas - Ahhh! I forgot to tell you about the bowling party! It was for kids (cosmic bowling with crazy lights and loud music), but I meant to explain that so you wouldn't feel like we intentionally left you out. Thomas, ladies and gentlemen, is practically family.

Last night the five of us came home and fell asleep on the couch with both dogs. The cat had run of the place so she snuck in some alley cats and they threw a party in the front room. I woke up to find the place littered with beer bottles and cat nip. But that might have been a dream.

Tom, sleep my brother! But always read my stuff first :)

Genny!! That is amazing news. Look how far you've come! I'm happy to have been part of that journey.

I think I wrote that sentence because I'm watching the Journey concert DVD.
