I found him!

Yes!!! THE ONE. He's funny, he's helpful and a bit weird like myself and he likes science fiction. Now the big question is what can he do for me and will he really like me?

Yeah, no...so not talking about romance, but am I the only one who sees the parallel to finding a romantic mate with finding that great literary agent (and sometimes publisher)?

You start the beginning of the seduction dance. You see each other across the floor (the page, search engine, etc). And you are scared, of course, to approach the person because you know you have the chance of being flat out rejected. But you like that person, even a little and hope that they like you to. You hope they find you smart and funny and...profitable(?) in the long run. You hope this person isn't out to swindle you and take you for all your worth leaving you penniless, cheated, alone and having to start all over again.

So you take that step with the hope that maybe, just maybe, the person wants to see more of you. And then the dance really commences as you work together to bring beautiful little 200 page bundles of joy into the world to grow up and become a best selling grownups and productive additions to society.

At least that's the dream.

For now, I see what I want and I want to approach, but I have to get my credentials ready (past experiences). Put on my best dress (nice, articulate words), fix my hair (query letter) and do a little more homework on my prospect (make sure the agent wants what I got!) and then maybe a little bit down the road I'll be announcing our new bundle of joy after the marriage (agent/author partnership).

Now if only men came with referrals and happy former client feedbacks and background checks, I'd say we're on the road to getting some things done!

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?
