That must be it, cause I haven't been able to find them on my laptop and like Janet pointed out to me, only two animals! How can that be?πŸ˜‰

Where did you find those crossed fingers? I looked all over for them!

Added a comment to 121 Anxiety 

Oh no! What happened? At the last minute, she had to reschedule? What a disappointment, I'm sorry to hear that, but look on the bright side, maybe she'll give extra thought to your submission packageπŸ™

She said that the market is looking for diverse children protagonists right now. Oh well, by the time I finish rewriting all 3 books in the series, animals will come back around!

Added a comment to 121 Anxiety 

Right? It just can't be possible that she doesn't like animals! I think that must be agent speak for "I can't SELL animal stories". You kind of have to read between the lines with them😁

Wow, another full? That's great news, congratulations! Is this the second novel, Lynn?Β 

Yes, she had a lot of positive things to say but when she stressed right up front that she didn't like animal stories, I figured there wasn't much sense asking if she'd like to see the full after I made the changes she suggested.

I'm so glad I took Jericho's advice and only submitted to six agents because I've got some reworking to do before trying again. Β

Oh no, nightmares? I've got my fingers crossed that she has a lot of helpful advice and has done her homeworkπŸ™

Good luck, Sue! I'll be thinking of youπŸ™

Hi Lynn, how did your 121 go? Mine was very informative and Davinia was well prepared and gentle with her feedback. I'd recommend her to anyone since she is now expanding her list to adult fiction too.Β 

Thanks for the heads up about being asked if you had any questions. I prepared a list of questions and it came in handy! I got a goldmine of information about things that she probably wouldn't have covered on her own. Her answers to my very specific questions were immediate and spot on so I could tell she had invested time in my submission package even though the first thing she told me was she didn't like animal stories. I'm very happy with my first 121 experience and it was well worth the money.

You should be proud! it looks very professional and your blurb is superb. Congratulations, Karmen!!

That's so nice of you, thank you! ❀

Hi Paul-Dominique,

Thanks for sharing your 1-2-1 experience. I have one tomorrow and I hope I'm able to take the constructive criticism as well as you did! Congratulations on the great voice compliment! I happen to love prosecco and I'm raising my glass to you!
