Warning: No trace of HUMBLE in this post

See that thing on my sidebar that says CURRENT WIP? Over there to the right -- go look. Look now, because soon it'll be gone. Not gone-gone, but moved down to the MY BOOKS section.

Law of Averages has been ACCEPTED by EC!

*Postscript: deleted the next two paragraphs, because I managed to annoy even myself*

YAY!!! I am so happy for your quickness at it. (Jeez that was fast) and that your multi published now kiddo!! YIPEEEEE!!!!

Leah Braemel said...

Congratulations, Wylie! Happy Dancing for you!

(And the quickness comes from having a previously published book ... mine's almost four months - but I'm FINE with that. While I haven't heard there's still hope.)

Wylie Kinson said...

Yes Leah - you're absolutely correct. I have an editor already so I'm in, where a new author to EC (or other house) would have to go through the general-submission gate, which takes much longer.
When I submitted Destiny by Design, I waited about 2 months to hear it was going to an acquiring editor (only because I broke a rule and asked! - eek!) and another 2 months for a conditional acceptance based on an revise and resubmit.

Yay, Wylie!

Amy Ruttan said...

Ya, always it takes a while to break in. I heard fast only because I submitted to a call for submission where there was a deadline to accept.

Once your in you hear alot faster. No worries Leah. I hope you hear soon and CONGRATS again to Wylie I can't wait for the Law of Averages.

Bonnie said...

Way to go Wylie! I was wondering where my Inner Cheerleader had run off to -- she must be at your place. ;)

Carrie Lofty said...

Awesome news! Congrats! And darn that's fast...

Wylie Kinson said...

Carrie - thanks, and yes, epubs feed my impatience. One of these I plan to reach for the brass ring that is NY, but for now, I like the quick satisfaction of the epub!

Bonnie - LOL! I'll send her back. I'm good for awhile on the adrenilyn rush (I know I spelled the wrong, whatever!)

Amy - well said. I guess once a NY author is in, same goes in terms of speed??

Julia - THANKS! Love the jumping jack. What do I have to do for a cartwheel :D

Amy Ruttan said...

I think so,

and you didn't need to delete those two paragraphs. You rock and you weren't annoying not at all. :)

You deserve to preen my dear I know how tough it is for you to shut off that internal editor and move forward. I am so proud of you!!! :)

Wylie Kinson said...

Amy - Oh, but I did. If I could avoid myself for the next few days I totally would. I can barely be in the same room with my head! :D

Red Garnier said...

YEY YEY YEY! HOORAY FOR WYLIE! I can't wait for readers to get their hands and eyes on this baby . . . ;)

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I doubt those two paragraphs were annoying.

Regardless, HUGE congrats, babe!!

Thomma Lyn said...

Wylie Kinson said...

Thanks so much guys -- I really appreciate your comments and willingness to share my news.

Of course now you'll hear nothing but 'Law of Averages this' and 'Law of Averages that' until it releases.

I apologize in advance *chagrin* but consider it fair warning :D
