^^^^ Well thank you!
So, publishing is sloooooooow af.
I'm a little disappointed. My agent had a really tough year so it took her a long-ass time to get all of her clients' edits back - mine took a year. But we finally went on submission!
And no luck yet. My book did come pretty close. An editor at a publishing house really liked it and brought it to acquisitions, but at the last minute, they decided the math didn't add up and didn't take it on.
But the editor did say that he was super bummed that they couldn't do my book, and told my agent to get something else of mine to him ASAP. So that's nice?
But yeah I'm feeling so disillusioned.
