I just got my second request for a partial on BLOOD WILL TELL. When I saw the email in my inbox, I was already bracing myself for the rejection. My heart is still trying to beat its way out of my chest.

I haven't quite got enough breath to SQUEEE yet.

Must calm down before I respond. The first RFP didn't come to anything. But it sure feels like a step in the right direction.

Never give up. Never surrender.

Congrats


And I also think it's a step in the right direction. And you know that you did something right.

Any idea of when you will know for sure?

Thanks.

The e-mail says to allow 12 weeks, so that puts it sometime after the first of the year.

Hehe. Three months to dream!

I think it did. But this particular agent has never asked for a synopsis.

Thanks everyone.

Another wipe out, but at least it was fun while it lasted.
