Just A Quick Update!

Hey guys!

I just wanted to post a quick update since it's been a long time since I've done so (sorry about that!). It's very possible that no one is even reading my blog posts anymore since I post so infrequently, but oh well! :P

The agent who requested a Revise and Resubmit from me ultimately passed on The Suit War. However, she did say that my manuscript was really close, to not give up on it, and that she would be willing to take another look at TSW again down the road if I end up making major revisions in the future. While it was a bummer to receive yet another no, especially when I felt so close to a yes, it was nice of her to still keep the door open for a possible R&R in the future. :\

Since the R&R rejection, I've received three full manuscript requests, one of which has already been rejected. But I'm still hopeful that things will turn out positive in the end. :)

My pride and joy of the summer, however, has been my book on wattpad entitled BULLIED. I talked about this book back in my WWW#55 post, but it's really taken off since then. BULLIED currently has over 827,000 reads on wattpad, and has been #1 on the Non-Fiction What's Hot List for weeks. The best thing that has happened though is the messages and comments I've received from various people that have read and/or submitted their story to be in BULLIED. Quite a few people have said that BULLIED has literally saved their lives; just reading the various submissions have helped them realize that other people have it worse than them, things really can get better, and sharing/talking about their situations/experiences can make a world of difference in terms of getting advice, getting help/support, or just getting it off their chest. So yeah, I'm really proud of BULLIED because it's actually making a difference, as I hoped it would. <3

Today (well technically yesterday ... since it's after 2AM already) was my first day of classes for my second year of the postbac premed program I'm doing. I'm going to be putting all of my focus into my schoolwork and volunteer work until next May (i.e. when I've completed the program), but I'll still do my best to keep you all updated on the agent front if anything exciting happens. :D
