It's a strange feeling. I remember 16 - 20 years ago, when if this had happened to me,I would be doing cartwheels and gloating in public. Now? It's not so much 'meh' as 'now what?', with the full knowledge that the process is merely on-going. Always one more summit.

I'm still dumbfounded, even after sending blurb, cover art, and payment info forms. I'm almost more wigged-out by having an agent, as I am having a publisher. Esp. since the agent rep is a provisional situation, hinging on whether she likes my big fat epic fantasy.

Mr. Not-so-Anonymous, may you have great sales and amazing reviews!
Watching this play out has been inspirational.
