I just remembered it's Friday. (Not sure what that says about today...)
At any rate: THANKS for a great First Kiss round! Any thoughts? Favorites?
I've got a secret to share! While the First Kiss round was going on, I received a Lurking Agent email! This was a first-time agently lurker (as opposed to my "regulars"). Two of the kisses caught her attention and she wondered if it would be possible to see more material.
Did you catch that? This was a crit session for FINISHED AND UNFINISHED manuscripts, sans logline or opening page. Yet two of the smooches were obviously juicy enough to get someone's attention.
Juicy = well written, of course.
I warned the agent that the projects may or may not be complete, and then I emailed the authors. Much to the agent's delight, one of the novels was finished and ready for submission, and the other will be ready in a few months. Win-win!
All that to say: YOU NEVER KNOW!
How's that for a Friday happy? Things just keep getting better around here.
Monday will be fun, too. Because right after the close of the first Secret Agent submissions window, I've got a cool announcement.
(No, it's not the sale of my novel. Not yet! And believe me, I won't be sticking news like that toward the end of a Friday Fricassee.)
So there you have it! Good stuff everywhere.
Have a wonderful weekend!
