My agent just let me know that an editor who has been reading my manuscript loves it and wants to work on it!

I guess it will still be awhile until we find out if the editor will make an offer, but this is the closest I've ever gotten to publication.

Guess I'll just be waiting with my fingers crossed and trying to work on the next book...

Yeah, it's crazy!

Luckily I got to talk to the editor who made the first offer and she seems pretty cool, so I wouldn't mind too terribly if no one else put an offer in.

But I'm hoping they do.
