"The cat is above all things, a dramatist." ~Margaret Benson
Today, some updates:
Our container vegetable garden is doing quite well, despite the hot and dry weather conditions. We have lettuce and cucumbers every day, and the beans and peppers are starting to do well too. We're still waiting on the peas, tomatoes, and broccoli, but they look promising. And the basil...well, let's just say we're going to have homemade pesto through the winter.
Both cats survived their vet appointments yesterday, though the older one (who ended up in the hospital for 4 days last summer) had a rather rough time on the road trip. However, it seems that he has at least 9 lives, and probably more like 10 or 11, since his heart disease has reversed itself and is approaching "normal" numbers - against all odds.
The agent response to my Summer's Song queries has been lukewarm and reinforces my belief that it is tougher than ever to get an agent these days UNLESS you have one of the following:
~You write erotica.
~You write fantastic inspirational romance.
~You have a national platform like, say, Paris Hilton or Brittany Spears.
~You have a terrific voice AND a brand new, original idea.
I still want to find a home for Summer's Song - so will probably submit to my editor at Samhain. Fingers crossed that she likes it!
So, what's new with you?
