Hello, AW.

I've been a long time AW member and even longer querier. In fact, I had been querying agents for 8 years on 7 manuscripts.

Finally, last week I signed with the awesome John Rudolph of Dystel & Goderich Literary Management.

I've blogged about my long lit journey:

And also did an interview for QueryTracker's success stories page:

Thanks again AW because, as I had posted in my newbie thread (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68720) back in July 2007, this site is truly a writer's godsend.

Steve

Congratulations, and thank you for telling how long it took. It helps those of us out there still making our baby steps set some realistic expectations of the commitment we have to make!

Thanks, everyone!

It's been a week and still getting used to it. The good thing is that I have agent revision notes, completed my own notes, and have started on the revisions. So I'm doing what I love the most--writing.
