OMG OMG OMG! I heard back from the agent who requested the first 3 chapters of SwanSong!!! I saw the email and was afraid to open it… I wept all down Messenger at my SecondLife mom because I was so sure she was going to reject it (it’s seriously hard to get a request for a full manuscript). And this isn’t just ANY literary agent, but an old, established one who only represents romance and has been representing romance authors forever; so if *she* thinks she can’t sell it, nobody can sell it (as in, to a publishing house). So finally I realized this was silly, to cry over a rejection when I hadn’t even opened the email. So I went and read it… and she’d written this:
“Hello Allie – I have enjoyed the first three chapters from Swan Song, please send me the complete manuscript. You may send it as a Word document attached to a return email. I’ll read it and get back with you in four to six weeks.”
I am… I am… OMG! <hyperventilates> And also, it’s not just SwanSong she’s interested in, but the whole series! She’d said so in her initial response to my query. So this is like… just… OMG OMG!
Okay, just because I”m like, super excited, here’s the website that tells about the series, and the synopses of the first two books, which are done: http://www.alliemccormack.com/series-sons.html
