Small Things Hop


I have a couple of Small Things to celebrate this week. 


  • I finished writing a manuscript ! Yay! 
  • I had an agent ask if she could use my query in a workshop she's presenting. At first I thought she'd use it as a "here's what to avoid" sample. But no, she said it was almost perfect. Huh?  I said no to her using it, of course. Just kidding. 
  • I'm away for a few days--beautiful Tassajara beckons. A wonderful, and maybe not so small thing to celebrate. I'll be late in visiting blogs, but I'll do that when I return. Here's where I headed.

  3. To have your query used as a sample of what works is a compliment. I'm having mine crunched over at Matt MacNish's spot. Hoping to see what I can do to make it agent-appealing.

  21. Yay Lee!

    Well done on completing your manuscript. Nothing more fun than having yourself queried in a workshop. What purdy pictures, Lee. Seems a lovely break away and hopefully an escape from the pesky paparazzi.

    Is this a blog hop? One moment please....Argggghhhhhh!!!! Sorry about that. I'm okay now. Well not okay as such. I like to think of myself as delightfully eccentric.

    Have a gosh darn fun time away.

    Your starstruck fan,

    Gary!
