What does it feel like to send a book proposal that has taken months to write to a literary agent AT HER REQUEST? The answer is incredible! Completing my proposal and first chapter after this much time is a tremendous sense of accomplishment. Sure, sure I know that it’s not truly complete until the editor, agent, and publisher says ‘it’s done.” But honey, for now it’s done. Addressing the envelope, purchasing the postage, and handing those pages + SASE to the postal clerk is like a fresh, cold Coke on a 94 degree day. As a matter-of-fact, that’s exactly what I did when I walked out of the post office. I purchased a cold 20 ounce Coca-Cola Zero.
