Celebrate Agent News, International Potluck Blogfest & Freebies

Kate signed with Suzy Townsend of New Leaf Literary last week and wrote about what it was like to get The Call. If you want to know how she did it, or just want to congratulate her, go HERE.
CONGRATS KATE!!! Woohoo!!!
(That means my 8-member CP group now has 3 agented authors. Wow!)

This week I'm celebrating:
1)  Kate getting an agent!  I'm so excited and happy for her!  She really deserves it!
2)  My Aug 12 bloghop is coming up - please sign up below.
3)  Alex Cavanaugh interviews me about my A-Z's Ghost Story theme HERE. Come say hi!
4)  I had toe surgery and am still alive (in pain, but alive).
5)  I've listened to my awesome CPs, backtracked, tossed out a scene in Ch 4, and I'm writing a new scene - which will change the WHOLE PLOT!  Eek!  Yes, it slows my revisions (again), but not being afraid of advice or rewriting makes me feel STRONG!

Do any of you wish you would get The Call from an agent?  How long have you been querying?
