View Full Version : Partial Requested

09-08-2006, 02:01 AM
I posted this in the Romance section, since, well, I write romances and Cathy suggested that I post it here as well. :) After mentioning that I needed a cookie when reading about all of the new first time authors having their books published, I opened my email and in my inbox was a request from an agent who said that he would love to see the first 50 pages of my Harlequin Blaze targeted story. Yay!

I know partial requests aren't much to some people, but after dozens (might as well make that closer to 100 in my career) of rejection letters, having a reputable agent request a partial means A LOT to me. This agent makes the third to have asked for a partial for this particular story, so I'm doing my own private Snoopy dance.

Congrats! I love the Blaze line. Here's hoping this turns into a request for a full and a big fat YES PLEASE!

Any request for your work, in part or whole, is worth a fifth of triple malt Scotch savored by a roaring fire! Congrarts.

Fantastic news, Sonarbabe. Do celebrate. Here's hoping the request for partial gets converted into one for the whole MS. Fingers crossed!

Again, thank you to all of you who have shown support! It means a lot to me. A huge batch of virtual cookies will be made for everyone should I receive any further good news... :e2cookie:

(or double rich fudge in the rejections section should I be told to bugger off. LOL) ;)
