    Congratulations, Laurel! I really enjoyed your response. I thought it was interesting that you felt more in control of the online world than of your own stories. Although the absentminded-business of getting your name out there to the endless number of possible readers was easier than the writing — I suspect you are actually far more in control of the outcome of your work.

    Glad I popped over here. I had no idea you had a book illustrated by the fabulous Jaime Zollars and your banner made me feel immediately glad I came.

    Wishing you loads of success

    Honestly I didn’t know who Cynthia was. I’m now glad I know, so thank you! As they say in my native country: “There’s no shame in not knowing but there is in not willing to learn”(Translated by myself from Turkish: Bilmemek ayip degil, ögrenmemek ayip).
    Nice interview!

    Laurel, Just read your interview at Cynsations. BOY, can I relate to your frustration at losing control of submitting (even though I love my agent). And the waiting. And waiting. And waiting. Especially this past year. Anyway, great interview!

    Hi Laurel,

    Great interview! I can’t imagine being addicted to this ebb and flow though. But….

    I have to share something—I just finished my second manuscript, and I’ve just started querying. I’ve been going through the agents listed on Agent Query who like humor, and I came across Tina Wexler. I saw your name! YAY! Anyway, I just queried her. She’s number 24. That’s it for now. I’ve had 4 rejections, one request for a full, and one invitation to re-query after the holidays. It’s only been a week and a half. But every hour I’m checking email….. and surfing. Just like you said in your interview. It IS addictive, that part anyway!!

    Good luck with your sales!!!!

    I need to read this interview…

    I just zipped over here from Cynthea Liu’s blog. I loved hearing from a SAHM-turned-author. That’s my journey right now, so it’s inspiring to read about your success. Congratulations.
