A Game of Catch-Up

 


Well, I must admit to feeling a bit behind. My sporadic summer blogging put a serious kink in my new news/gossip line, as well as my connections to all of you. Therefore, we need to catch up.
 
Here's what's new with me:

Over the summer, I had a close encounter with "the call". An agent expressed interest in representation and we scheduled a time to visit by phone. Sadly, she had a medical emergency two days before our call and for health reasons is no longer able to provide representation. *sigh* I do still have a couple of fulls out there, though, so keep your fingers and toes crossed for me.

In July, my family went to Disneyland for the first time and then spent a week on the beach in San Diego. We went to Sea World and the Zoo while we were there, and a great time was had by all. 

It was a good summer.

Now, what's new with you? 
What's new with our bloggy buddies? 
What did I miss?

Tell me everything!

That sounds like a fun vacation! That's good news you had an offer of rep even though it didn't quite work out. Where there's one, there's another! Wishing you all the best that your agent soulmate will call you soon! :)

I'm so happy about your agent near miss and the fulls you have out there! Keep going. Good summer here watching my girls discover all sorts of new things....including seeing the ocean for the first time.

Heather said...

Oh no, so close with the call! I wonder if she'll recommend you to anyone in her agency... You never know, could happen. So sorry to hear about her medical emergency but the good news is, if one shows interest, chances are good that more will!

Heidi Willis said...

Oh Shannon! That must have been heartbreaking to get that close and have it fall apart for that reason! But if one is interested, hopefully more will too! So congrats on that success!

Your SoCal experience sounds awesome! We went to Florida and did much of the same. Good to have some relaxing family time!

Exciting!

Congratulations on the agent news even if it didn't pan out. That just means it is only a short while before you gain astounding representation imo. Hang in there...your ship is comin' in.

Hi Shannon .. gosh that's the way life is sometimes .. but if there's one - there's another somewhere.

The holiday sounds good .. and lots of fun ..

Lenny emailed me and I wrote a post about it .. latest post, or one before! Wonderful exchange of news with him .. can't miss his smiling logo though ...

Welcome back - and someone will appear very soon I'm sure .. cheers Hilary

What a rollercoaster with your close "call!" You are almost there! Good luck with your other fulls.
And it sounds like you had a very fun summer!! I want to go to San Diego one day!

Susan R. Mills said...

That stinks about the agent! I'm sorry to hear that. Glad you had a good summer anyway!

KarenG said...

I wondered where you were this summer! It sounds like a busy one for you, and as for me, I am getting geared up for 2 big events. First is the Labor Day Blog BBQ, everyone is invited woo hoo! And the other is the blog tour for my new release. Looking for reviewers if you are interested!

Old Kitty said...

I'm sorry about the agent but that was truly a very very very close call!! I wish you luck and have everything crossed that you get even more positive news with the other two still pending!! YAY for you!!!

Awwww Disneyworld - yay!!!! Glad you and your family had a great time!

Take care

That's so exciting!!! If you've got one contact, you know there's another one close on the horizon! I'll be crossing my fingers for you :)

Sherrie Petersen said...

Omigosh, Shannon! That's a close call that I've never heard of before. Holy smokes!!

You were so close to me being at Disneyland. Sounds like you guys had a fun vacation. I'm playing catch up with blogging, too, so I have no news to share :)

Christine Fonseca said...

Such a close call! I am sure you will have THE CALL soon!

Glad you had fun in California - we were close!

I had a great summer - and a busy one. My school year started Aug 1, so I am in the full swing of trying to balance everything again. Yikes

I'm sorry to hear about the agent. On the positive side, though, it gives you hope that another, healthier, agent will pick up your work.
Disney and the beach sound great.
I sent my kids to several summer camps, joined them for one, and just relaxed.

Shari said...

Thanks for the catch-up. Your vacation sounded sweet!

Nothing new here. We went to reunions and visited family. And also went hiking. It was all fun and games until I got blisters.

Good luck with your manuscript!

Regina said...

Everything is crossed and I am having a hard time walking. I think things will work out for you. Best wishes.

Liz @ Cleverly Inked said...

No worries you'll get one! I'm playing catch up too.

Susanne Drazic said...

I've been playing catch up with my blog reading all summer. Glad you had a wonderful vacation!

Connie Arnold said...

Thanks for catching us up on some of your summer excitement, Sharon! Hopefully another agent will come through for you that will work out. I'm hoping for great things for you with your writing!

The July trip sounds wonderful! Glad you had a good summer.

I've been surviving the summer and looking forward to fall and better things.

Catherine Denton said...

I hate that everything didn't pan out but STILL, that's AWESOME!! You're that much closer to finding the agent that will take you on. So excited to watch your journey.

As for me, loved summer except for the heat which was extreme in my part of the world. Looking forward to fall.
