Return of Oscar...or is it Felix??

So, after several weeks of not seeing my little furry, gray companion squirrel, he made an appearance today.  In fact, he always seems to appear in my life to signal a great shift.

I was sitting in my car, turned to my right, and noticed him through my window.  Up at eye level, laying down, frogger-style, on a platform that next to my car.  Oh, how he made me smile.  Just chilling out and relaxing, as if bathing in the sun.

Indeed, once again, he brought with him a sign....I've finally started submitting letters to agents for my suspense novel.  The procedure is usually to email a letter, outlining your book and credentials, along with the first chapter.  

Today, I got my first request for the full manuscript.  A terrific thrill!  At once, my heart sings with promise, while at the same time, bracing myself for a possible rejection.

If all the planets align, I will be heading in the right direction.


  1. This is great news Dawn! The best of luck to you! Keep us updated! :)

  2. Thanks so much, Gina! For your continued support and friendship. I really appreciate it, and I will keep you updated, even if it's a rejection. I'll pick myself up and try again until I succeed.

  3. Dawn! I am so excited, so proud, and so confident -- you will succeed!!!!! Forge ahead at full speed!
