I'm not dead! Yet!!!

I know, I've been MIA for over a week, but I'm not dead, I promise.

I'm just very, very busy. But a good kind of busy.

My agent pitched my 4 book series to an editor who loves the idea and even took notes on all the book synopsis. She said we'd discuss those later, but for now, she gave me her input on the first book and wants to see the full as soon as it's done. I told my agent it would be done and polished in 2 months!

What was I thinking??????

So that's the reason for my absence. That, and I had to proof a 300 page manuscript for one of my CP's in a 24 hour time period. She would do the same for me, in fact, all of my CP's would, but it whooped my behind. Anyway, I made it through that and I can make it through this too. I just have to buckle down and work double duty.

So if you don't hear from me a ton, that's why. I haven't forgotten you all, I'm just trying to meet this deadline so we can get the first book to her by June before I go to nationals in July. She can actually buy the series based on one full book. Now, that would be awesome.

I'll keep you all posted.

Karitown out;)

Thanks, everyone. I'm still plugging away but I'm making progress. I'm just about at the half way mark and I have until mid June, so I'm right on target.

Tired, but on target;))
