Didja miss me??

Question: what happens when you are too dumb to remember your login info for your blog?
Answer: your blog becomes stale and outdated and you get harassing emails from your agent to start updating it again.

Thanks to the brilliant "retrieve login info" at live journal, I am now back and rarin' to go.

Okay, first things first, I woke up Monday morning with this almost overwhelming feeling that something truly AMAZING was going to happen this week. Was I going to sell one of the gazillion proposals I have out there in editor-land? Was my good friend Trish finally going to get The Call? What was going to happen!?!?!

Well, I might have the answer. Or I might not.

Last night I got a call that both Studying Boys and Putting Boys on the Ledge finalled in the National Reader's Choice Awards. This is a big contest and very awesome and exciting. I'm totally stoked! Yay! They do this big promo thing at the RWA National conference and have a big awards ceremony, so I'm totally pumped. Yay!

So here's my question: was the NCRA the thing I was feeling on Monday, or is something else still to come? I mean, it's almost 10:40 Pacific Time, which means all those New York editors will soon be heading out the door to start their weekend early, so I'm not really thinking there's too much of a chance that any sales are going to be happening between now and the end of the day. So was my feeling about the NRCA, or was I off by a week and something is going to happen next week? Any predictions? Hmmm....

Oh, and more exciting news! My May teen book, which officially hits the shelves on May 3rd, started to ship today from online bookstores. exciting! There is still nothing like the feeling of walking into a bookstore and seeing your name on a book in there. Truly, it's awesome. Incredible. Mind-boggling..... oooo!!! My agent is calling me!!! Maybe this is it!!!!!!!!

False alarm. Sigh. She was returning my call that I left her about finalling in the NCRA. Darn it! So close, yet so far!

Off to eat leftover lasagna from the Spaghetti Factory. Delish!

Thank my agent! Without her to knock me around, I'd never get anything done. PS Since I could tell you were about to ask, my agent is Michelle Grajkowksi and she rocks.
