Houston, We Have Liftoff!

Well, it’s been a crazy busy week. I won’t bother with a recap since all of that stuff was in my last post. So I’ll just get to the good stuff…

I just received an email from an agent requesting a partial!! Whoo to the Hoo! I know this is just a first step in a series of many, but it’s wonderful news.

This validates two things for me. One, my story concept isn’t total crap. This agent thinks it sounds promising. That means other agents will think so too. So, even it this one doesn’t end up being The One, I am confident that there will be others who will be interested in what I have to offer. Two, my query letter isn’t total crap. It conveyed my concept in a way that made my novel enticing enough to request the partial.

By my score sheet, this is a huge success and definitely a step in the right direction on my way to becoming published! Happy Friday!

  2. Wendy Marcus says:

    Don’t know what I did but my post should go on to read….

    ….news. Good luck!

  3. charmainegordon says:

    and a hearty Yee Haw, not only for the partial request but for your attitude. It’s a you go, girl moment. I never say that. Oops. I just did. Keep writing querying and loving life-every golden moment. It’s what we have.

    1. hthurmeier says:

      Thanks Wendy and Charmaine! I’m so excited!!!

  4. Janet Walters says:

    Heather, I’ll cross my fingers, toes and eyes for good luck to you

  5. Shoshanna Evers says:

    Congrats Heather! This is wonderful news, and you’re right – getting a request for a partial means your query letter and your story concept are good. Whoo hoo!

  6. Taryn Kincaid says:

    Congrats! Best of luck with it!

  7. Yolanda says:

    Great news! Fingers crossed and keep us posted!

    1. hthurmeier says:

      Thanks everyone! The excitement has started to wear off a little as I sit and wait. So it’s time to get to work and pretend it hasn’t happened. Hard to do, but I’ll try.
