A full request!

Hello, ladies and gents, I just wanted to jump up and down for a moment because an agent has requested the full manuscript for Following Julia Roberts!

May is Over, June is In

I didn’t really set any goals for April or May. At first I decided that I would pat my back for things I got done and not worry about what I set out to do. Apparently praise doesn’t work for me. I didn’t even do a decent blog session this month. So, back to goal…
