Okay, so this squee requires backstory.

On my recent Spring Break my father unintentionally gave me a fantastic plot idea. I kicked around, wrote a synopsis, and started showing it to my CPs. I also pitched it to my writing group. THEY LOVED IT. The amount of love they showed this book which I haven't even written yet was equal to or greater than the enthusiasm they had for the book I just finished.

Pretty much everyone told me to put my current book aside for later, because it's good, but this is better.

Also, recently, I won a contest for a 30 pg. critique, query critique, and skype call from Meredith Barnes. Well, I had that call today, and she loves it too! She said she thinks the premise is phenomenal, and had some really great criticism on my pages.

I'M JUST SO EXCITED!

Good for you, Charlee. :) Acronym n00b here -- What's "CP"?

By the way, I finished that first draft I mentioned a few posts above, clocking in at ~52K, which is approximately NaNo length. I started in mid-March and just finished this afternoon. Now I just have to print, set aside for awhile, and edit as necessary. :)

Ok, I feel like I'm taking over this thread. But, good things happen in threes, do they not?

I just participated in the April Miss Snark's First Victim Secret Agent Contest (It seriously needs a shorter name). I did not win. BUT another agent was trolling the entries and asked for my query and first 5 pages. I should be sending it off tomorrow. I will let you know if anything comes of it!

That SHOULD be all my squee for now.

I just found out that my first published erotic romance, Always You, was chosen as a finalist in the Passionate Plume contest. The winner will be announced at the RWA Nationals this summer. This is such a huge contest it's definitely one of those cases where it really is an honor just to be nominated. Squee!!

An update on the Squee:

The Agent got back to me last week (The day before BEA) and requested a partial! EEE! This is my first request of any kind. My first QUERY of any kind. So I have sent out a bunch of other queries so that I can possibly have options if this agent offers rep. Happy!
