Good Day for Me!!

I got the call today from an agent. When all's official, I'll let you know who it is.

Funny thing (sorta) was that I was at the library with Elizabeth, so the whole time I was on the phone, I was trying to keep her from running around like a crazy wild thing. She was loud, she spit on a little boy, and she was pulling books off shelves. Thank goodness we were in the children's section.

Update on the teen writing workshop: it's been moved to October 6th. If you're a local teen, and you want to work on your writing talent and meet others with the same vibe, join us!

Whooo-hoooo! Happy Dance. I KNEW IT (do I get a prize for accurate fortune telling???)

When I got "the call" I was out of town and didn't return it for 10 days. When she called back for the real talk . . . my kids pounded on the door, asked for cheese, pushed their bathing suits under the door to be untangled, and decided to make jello.

Said agent was undeterred!

Congratulations Amber! Sheesh I finally made the connection between seeing you at Cindy's and the blueboards. I know I'm slow.

So wait you are in the DC area? I'm in Bethesda! I saw your zoo trip and laughed. I was at the zoo the week before you went and had to stop by the panda too! It was our first time taking the kids to the zoo by metro also! Man that is a long walk! I'm driving next time.

Ello and Linda: we should have a Maryland kidlitbloggers meet-up some time. :-)

This week is going to be huge for me: must choose an agent, am moving to a different house 1/2 mile away, and am, well, seven months pregnant. I'll blog about it all soon as I can!

Who's it going to be? I want to be at least the third or fourth person to know!

Good luck.
