Ditto. Except that I've read it. Get to it, Sommer! ;)

Well, well, well. My former lit. agent want humble me back. The question is; do I want to work with lit. agents at all or should I proceed with self publishing, what I already like much-much-much better and presumably would serve the best interests of the present works. Well, it seems today is the day when I'm going to say no to an agent.

That's got to be a vindicating experience.

It is. So, after five seconds of meditation I said, "no, thank you". I'm defiant and I want to do self publishing, especially as I already have the release dates and I won't change that because someone else suddenly sees business when I did most of the work already. Summa summarum; Agents had their chance.
Spoiler:
And now I can tell; I was the one who said no to an agent. :D

Good for you! Always good to be in the position of having the option to say "no". Best of luck!

Thanks. :) And yes, it's a good position. I always try to keep it.

And little good news for today... my fantasy character and favorite winged lady from Crystal Shade, Gracie has landed with Endeavour and got her official NASA certificate. :) If someone missed the whole story, you may read about it and also, you may find her commemorative flight certificate here...

I know that I have not been online here a lot lately, but there is a reason for it. School has kept me on my toes for the last couple of weeks. However, last night, at the Honored and Awards banquet, I received not one, but two awards for me all A's three times in a row and I received three scholarships! :D I place third in my class rank too! :D

Guardian: I don't know what's cooler - your work flying into space or refusing an agent!! Congrats on both accounts.

Mudpuppy: Way to go!! That is a real achievement, congrats!
