Sample Request

Well, I’m sitting at the computer printing out a map of the upcoming Croom Quest bike course so that I can go up to Withlacoochee State Forest and do some preliminary marking and decide to do a quick check of all of my emails. I finally get to my writing email account ( and there is something in my inbox.

Now, for the past three weeks, the something in my inbox has typically been a rejection–sometimes personal, mostly just a form rejection.

Well, this morning, I had a request for a small sample of Wendall’s Lullaby from an agent to whom I had only sent a very basic query letter. I know this is nothing to get too excited about–agents request partials all the time. But, in a last month that hasn’t been the greatest for me, it’s at least a tiny bit encouraging.

So, the sample of Wendall’s Lullaby is now in her inbox and I can head to Croom for my ride and paddle with a little smile on my face and some hope in my heart. If you have some spare positive thoughts, please send them my way!
