Full Manuscript Request!

Yeah Muse Conference! Apparently my pitch went better than I thought. After only a week, I've received a request for the rest of my manuscript! The party voice in my head is now battling with the voice of reason - DON'T get too excited, it's not a contract offer, just a full request. I have allowed myself one celebratory brownie (okay, I did have another small one, but I ate it with my eyes closed so it doesn't count)

!!!HAPPY DANCE HAPPY DANCE!!!

I will join your party voice. The reason voice can go sit in a dark corner while we eat celebratory brownies.
WHOO HOO!
You have done exceptionally well to have gotten this far. Most people see rivers of rejections. If it only goes this far that is one hell of a lot to have accomplished. So Bravo my friend. May I offer you a brownie? :-)

Oh wow - get this party started! That is awesome news!! Kudos to an awesome conference. Keeping my fingers crossed for you - pitch to a first three chapter request to a full ms request, sounds like this ms is on its way. Have a brownie for me!

Yay!!!!

Fulls are a big step towards an offer, and definitely worthy of celebration.

(and can I say I *love* the line of eating with your eyes closed so it doesn't count! That's awesome!)
