I couldn´t do it! I´ve peeked at Authonomy twice yesterday and once today. I even reviewed some books! Now that I´m in three digits, the addiction has a new purer strain. How can I give it up now?
At least I sent queries to two new agents. At least I had lunch with my writer pal, Sandra Gulland and we talked about my Young Adult novel and what to do to bring it up to date from 1974 so it´s not considered historical fiction.
I´m easing off. I¨m finding balance.
My 15-year old daughter has Sight, as it was called in one of the books I read on Authonomy, or vision or preciense or a connection with other energies and dimensions. We took a trail ride together yesterday and I said, "Now that I´ve dropped 65 pages from my memoir and changed the title, is it going to be picked up?" Often, Carla will tell us if we are going to have a good day in our business, Jasmine Day Spa. Results are 99% accurate. Sometimes Carla doesn´t feel like looking into the future, but she was game yesterday.
"In about three months, an older blondish lady is going to want your book."
"Is it going to sell a lot?"
"Will it be made into a movie?"
She was laughing at me and my anxiety by now. "Yes, but that comes later."
So here it is, her prediction recorded. We´ll see if anything is happening with my book by the summer. I will stick to women when I send my agent query letters from now on.
