It's easy to go fall asleep at night and wake up happy in the morning when yet another agent wants to see your magnum opus. Yes, Fiorella had a request for a full from an agent she had queried last week, and she loves the way it was worded--if the manuscript is still available--implying that hordes of eager agents must be pounding at Fio's door.
Fiorella tried querying last year about this time and got nothing but form rejections or even worse, silence. But she's won more contests by now and kept her ears open at RWA meetings. She's also better prepared: her query letter is sharper, and the Jessica Faust hullabaloo produced not only a biography, but a contest and publication history.
Is the Emerald City in sight yet, Dorothy?
