We wanted to give you a head’s up that after some mad editing skills from Courtney (thanks, Courtney!) we have officially submitted our first manuscript to a few agents. We FaceTimed each other as we each hit send on our very first email submission and are excited about the agent list we curated.
This morning I bought some “champagne” to celebrate. I misguidedly purchased the sparkling wine with the obnoxious, vibrant pattern because I thought I should look festive. We may look like we’re celebrating, but let’s be honest-when is orange bubbly a good idea? (I didn’t know it would be orange!)
And yes, you can judge me for drinking cheap orange celebratory drink at noon on a Monday. But life is short, people. Why not?
So where do we go from here?
That’s a great question.
From here looks like waiting and more waiting.
Agents get piles of submissions every week so for most of them the response time is 4-12 weeks.
In the meantime, we’ll be editing our second book (and crossing all our fingers and all our toes.)
We’ll keep you posted. Thanks for following us on this journey.
