My BIG break...

So, I heard from an agent in NYC today. She loves, loves, loves Macy-Sue! Just like you all, she couldn't imagine bookstore shelves without her dancing around and curtsying to those who picked her up to read her pages. She offered me a 5-book deal (I have 3 written already) and said if I was interested, she would overnight the contract for me to sign and it would be a DONE DEAL! She is talking book tour, Macy-Sue dolls, a PBS cartoon and some other stuff that I couldn't hear over my screaming and giggling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, and...... APRIL FOOLS!!!!!!!

Julie Stiles Mills said...

you had me at "She loves, loves, loves Macy-Sue!" but your ornery was showing by the time you got to "5-book deal"

(you deserve that 5 book deal, ya know)

You're doing it all wrong. "April Fools" jokes start out with bad news, and then the joke is that it's really good. Never end up on a negative note. It's all about relief.

(I'm thinking that you know this, and you're about to post that the first "April Fools!" was the April Fools.)

GRRRR! You suck! I mean, Ha ha ha, good one!
I was totally believing it until I read that the agent offered you a deal just like that without telling you about the prospective publisher or anything.

That ranks right up there with the one I heard about Obana stepping down due to personal reasons...I almost feel for that one, too!

Great job and pulling our legs!
