    Thanks guys, you're great. I've literally *dreamed* about getting to post a message like this in Goals and Accomplishments. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll get to make another post someday about selling the NA rights.

    Thanks so much guys. I have SO MUCH NEWS but I can't share yet. But I'll update this thread the moment I can talk.

    Phael - "Underwear are fortunately optional if scrunched up" is my modus operandi, actually.

    Mellymel -

    :P

    But seriously. Thanks so much, and stay tuned!

    Benbradley - Thank you for your congratulations, though I have no idea what for!

    Thothguard - I am quite a fan of sauerkraut...

    Backslashbaby - sounds good. It shouldn't be too too long now.

    Hey, I missed something! I know something good happened, and lots of people know, but I missed it, darn it!

    I think you might have sold your novel?

    Okay, so I feel bad.

    I thought we were announcing Today. But agent wants to wait a few more days...

    However.

    I WILL say that we may have (also) agreed to a deal with a publisher that is a little closer to home. And by a little I mean a lot. And by a lot I mean

    Full story just as soon as my agent announces (I'm not going to pick a day cause I might be wrong. again.)

    Sorry guys. I hate to do this but I got (lightly) reprimanded by my agent for e-bragging about my eggs before they hatched so I'm trying to be a good boy from now on. lol. Sort of, anyway.

    Boooh!

    Just kidding But you're really building up the suspense here with more good news ----> have you considered switching genres?

    /Dreams of the day she'll be reprimanded by an agent/

    Erm, I'm really happy for you, still. Not saying why. I just am. I have my reasons. Secret reasons. But I'm happy
