My First Bite

Today, a literary agent requested to see more of KHUSH, my first novel. Before I say anything further, let me show a few rough statistics pertaining to literary agents in 2011.

Queries to prompt more material: .06%
Queries to prompt full manuscript: .01%
Queries to receive representation: .002%

Needless to say, the odds are against me.

Please, if you have room in your thoughts, or prayers, or whatever your function, send some of that sweet, sweet positivity my way.

Thank you, all of you, for participating in my life at some point, in one way or another. You have impacted the work that has carried me this far, regardless of our relationship—a lot farther than I knew myself capable. And an extra special thanks to my coworkers, who continue to be so tolerant, and supportive, of my chosen path.

Of course, this thing could still take years, but I don’t care. I feel pretty damned peachy.

Because, if nothing else, I am the .06%.
