Nancy Has Scored Her First Book Sale

Thank you God! Thank you fans! And special thanks to my literary agent Michele Glance Rooney for helping to motivate me to keep going when the going got tough! Michele Glance Rooney was not only a wonderful literary agent to me throughout this entire process, she was a wonderful friend and confidante. I will be forever thankful to my friend Gloria from the Cook County Library Group for recommending her.
Gloria had told me matter-of-factly: "Call my agent Michele Glance Rooney. She may not always tell you what you want to hear, but she will tell you what you need to hear and need to know to get your book published. Michele Glance Rooney is an agent who knows what it takes to sell a romance novel."
So I'm glad I listened. I'm glad I re-wrote the action scene when the pirates first captured Amanda like she advised me too. At the time, it seemed like a lot of work. But as I look back on it now I can see that what Michele recommended really made sense. The novel has a much better flow to it now.
I have sold my first novel.
My wonderful literary agent Michele Glance Rooney has helped me sell my first novel!
My terrific friend Gloria has listened to me and encouraged me throughout the whole process.
My wonderful husband Bill has been like a knight in shining armor as we waited patiently for this first sale!
So Bill and I will be popping the champagne corks tonight. I am so excited I feel tingly from head to toe. This is better than the world's greatest orgasm -- well almost.
