Back in the wheel

Hi everyone,

Home again. Six o’clock came early this morning after four hours of sleep. Today and tomorrow I hope to settle on a new agent. I have a phone visit set with one this afternoon and an e-mail exchange with another tomorrow. I hated parting ways with Karen Grencik, who is in all ways a warm and delightful person and highly respected agent, but in this drastically changed market her focus and mine have diverged.

On the planes yesterday returning from Portland I tweaked a new manuscript and got a chapter revised in a middle grade novel so today I also plan to get those changes typed into the computer. After that, a meeting at 2:00 and the phone call at 3:30. Should be a busy one. Wish me luck staying awake!
