We are Happy today!

Well, my ear still hurts but that's all right - I just got an e-mail from the nice agent I submitted Jack to, and she loves it, and wants to sign me up!!!
(add more '!!!'s)
And I'm sitting here with the puppy asleep on my lap (and he smells funny - time for a puppy bath) trying to type and not wake him up, and I'm thrilled, just thrilled that Jack will be in such good hands.
Yay!!
Puppy is now snoring, I don't think I have to worry about waking him up. And Rusty has somehow squeezed herself in the puppy bed on the floor. She looks uncomfortable, but she was determined to sleep in the puppy bed.
Today's schedule:
1:Blog a bit about my good news!
2:Take daughter to pony club
3:Watch Olympics
4:Call friends and family & chat about good news!(it's Sunday and rates are lower so I usually call everyone on Sundays)
5:Pick up daughter from pony club
6:Watch more Olympics, day-dream some more about good news
Busy day in perspective.
Now if only puppy will wake up!

Congratulations, Sam! Having a successful agent safari is sometimes more difficult than bagging elusive big game on a real safari... more dangerous, too, at least to the ego! I'm getting to feel left out, as I've had no success thus far in luring somebody to rep my stuff in NY!

Anyway, I'm cheering for you, and making note to look for your name on the bestseller lists before too long!

Thank you Ann!!
I've been agent-hunting for a LONG time, so I know how hard it is. It's a question of finding the perfect fit, and for this book, at least, I think I've found it.
This book is also a new style for me - a lot like my EC books, but not as hot, which is why I was wondering where to put it. I love writing for EC and I was upset thinking that this book wouldn't fit there, and I didn't want to send it anywhere else. So then I thought maybe an agent could help. And Voila!
I'm psyched!

Virenda said...

Quick question, what kind of books do you write and where can I buy one? I'd love to read something you wrote, oh and of course YOU HAVE to sign it. ;0)

Sam said...

Thank you for the kind words everyone!!!
I'm still floating. It's just a nice feeling to know I can write and revise, and someone else will be flogging this baby. LOL

Virenda - I write erotic romance, comic romance, comic erotica, and science fiction / fantasy - and a lot of cross genre work. If you check out my websites (www.samanthawinston.com
www.jennifermacaire.com - you can get a better idea. )
(and thanks for your interest!)
