We Have an Offer!

We (my agent Robin Rue and I) have received an offer on the Onyx Proposal. Better, we have accepted the offer. Barring acts of God, I’ve finally sold the thing, and though acts of God can occur right up until you sign the contract, I’m going to leap on faith here and dare to believe that this is going to happen. (To understand why this is such a huge, huge deal for me [if you haven’t been around my site since last October] the full history of the Onyx Proposal starts here. Start at the bottom post on the page and read from bottom to top and from page ten to page one to get the first three-quarters of the story, and then, if you want ending chapters, continue reading OP entries here, from bottom to top, and using the “next entries” link at the bottom of each page to scroll forward. It’s a bit of a saga.)

In other news, my daughter is without power and I can’t get through, but the area has — from all accounts — weathered the storm well. I’m hoping to hear from her as soon as phone lines clear or she gets electric back.

    I’m thrilled for you, Holly! Thanks for sharing the whole process with us. And I’m glad your daughter made it through Katrina safely.

    Much admiration for your work ethic

    Woo! Congrats! Well-earned after the saga you’ve been through. I can’t wait to watch it come to fruition. I just finished Last Girl Dancing (absolutely loved it!!) and am about to start Talyn.

    You must be happy and relieved! Congratulations! My thoughts are with your daughter. I just finished Midnight Rain, and while it was not quite what I expected – I liked it. 🙂

    I’m so pleased for you. You couldn’t deserve it more. Let us know when we can pre-order ; )

    Oh, Holly, I’m so happy to hear that! I’ve been rooting for you. I also thoroughly enjoyed Midnight Rain and Last Girl Dancing (just as much as I enjoy your fantasy novels) and plan to pick up Talyn whenever I have more than two pennies to rub together. Congrats on all the hard work paying off!

    It’s all about the alligator.

  • TinaK Aug 26, 2005 @ 11:44

    YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! What a saga it has been! I’m so thrilled for you and boy, I can’t wait to read this one. Keeping your daughter and family in my thoughts. Katrina sounded pretty rough.

  • Lemm Aug 26, 2005 @ 11:42

    Yay! *jumping and clapping* This does sound like a good one.

    Thinking of your daughter and everyone in Katrina’s path. I hope you hear from her soon.

  • arrvee Aug 26, 2005 @ 11:28

    YAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!! ‘Bout time they got some sense! This sounds like a good one.

    Looks like Katrina’s going to have a go at both of us about Monday. Be safe.
