Exciting news

An agent phone me this afternoon to request the full of my MS (with exclusivity)! I'm excited and nervous. And I'm nervous about getting too excited. There's still a huge chance it'll get rejected after he's read it. But I can't help thinking "What if?" and then I get even more excited (and even more nervous). And now I'm doing a blog entry like Caroline Smailes. But I can't help it.

Please cross your fingers.

p.s. He only received the synopsis and first 3 chapters this morning and rang me this afternoon to request the full. That has to be good right?

That is so good!
I am so pleased, happy, excited, nervous and happy again for you!
He only got thr 3 chapters this morning and later the same day he wants the rest. That is such a good sign.
I am so pleased for you! Fingers crossed you get good news.
Did you just send out to 1 agent or more than one?

That's awesome, Cally! Congratulations! I'm keeping all my available digits crossed for you and sending positive vibes your way. =o)

Wow, that's wonderful news! He's really eager, and that's a great sign.

One word of caution, though, and here I'm chanelling the inimitable Miss Snark: Don't give open-ended exclusives. Agree on a fair period after which you can continue to submit to other agents.

But cautionary matters aside, I hope this is 'it'!

So sorry I'm so late in reading about your good news. Having a major catch up here. Just a question. Have you already written the rest or will you have to write it now. I plan to have my synopsis done and first 3 chapters in the next couple of months.
