10 days after I sent the requested full manuscript, I got an email from Timothy Berman last night. He copied me on an email he sent to Stacey Kohan and Gwen Davis. Some of the email is pasted here:

"Again, I do believe NF Publishing would be interested in reviewing this manuscript and publishing this work of fiction because of the timely essence it is coming into."

He attached the entire manuscript!
I just wanted to share this exciting news. Again, I was just copied on the email, so, I take it be his way of keeping me informed of his opinion. I am trying to keep my feet on the ground because I know it still has to get through at least 2 other people before a contract will be offered. But, now I have a good reason to hope! :)

Congrats, and I hope it all works out.

I had to google the names here, and I guess I'm surprised. An agent who hasn't signed you yet, has already forwarded your manuscript to a publisher? I didn't know that was the way this worked. Kind of like an "I'll take you on if I have proof I can sell it." Weird.

But I'd be excited, just like you, anyway!

Congratulations! How excited you must be. I know I would have a very hard time keeping my feet on the ground after receiving an e-mail like that. It sounds like a celebration is in order just to have made it that far.
