Waste of Money

Nobody ever enjoys wasting money.  It's unheard of.  But I am really hoping that the $2.58 I spent today becomes the best wasted money I ever spent.  That's how much the postage was for the SASE I included in my proposal package today.  My daughter and I went to the post office and we both kissed the envelope before we handed it over to the clerk.  Wish us luck and cross your fingers for me!  My first ever manuscript (the ms for the first book in the series is included as part of the proposal) is mailed out, as of today!!!  What an exhilarating feeling!  Now I have to wait for 8 whole weeks!  Or 10, or 12...  I am so excited!

  2. Thanks, guys! Alison, the one I sent was my nonfiction series proposal. It's for the religious market and is called T is for Temples. The series includes 10 books, so I sent the ms for T is for Temples along with the entire proposal package as a "sample book," instead of the sample chapter. The second book is J is for Jesus. And so on and so forth.
