Hello friends and compatriots!
No news yet. Still waiting on the Agent Train for my stop.
Although, I did receive what is to date, the best rejection letter of my life.
An agent I was really into requested my full manuscript. That in it of itself warrants a !!!! But the next email I received from them went something like this:
I cannot represent you. Because I cannot finish reading your manuscript. …Because it is giving me nightmares.
!!!!!!!! Holy smokes man. I could not have asked for a better endorsement. People who have problems sleeping are going to have a hard time reading about the near extinction of the human race due to mass insomnia… So I guess that goes for agents as well!
I’m going to look at horror agents now, because this manuscript is far more horrifying that I originally gave it credit for. >:)
I’m also working on a new project which I will soon be able to share with you. It will be presented in audio format, and has been great fun to work on so far.
Also, I added a link my in “Craft” links- this one to a blurb I wrote on reddit, about my planning process! It has tons of links to various entries in this blog to elaborate.
SO meanwhile, because I really like that you stopped by, you beautiful resilient caribou, you astonishing display of peacock feathers, you stack of waffles, you, dear reader, I will add some fluff here. Because I like sharing. And laughing.
Want to get lost in Youtube watching cake-spinning videos with me? Because they are *singsong voice* amazing!
When I wrote this draft I was mega hungry, so a lot of this first bit is food related. NOW though, I am stuffed FULL of waffles and have a Magnificent Sandwich (band name called it patent pending HG Bleackley 2014) waiting for me for lunch. Chicken. Brie. Pear. Hoooo man I am going to have to wait a while on that though… waffles are my world right now.
How about some pictures instead?
Something else! Not cake! Not food!
Wait for it…
NOOOOOOOO ok how about- this is how dogs drink!
Ah yes, the rare 9-legged Plover.
And then sometimes, you’re like, no freakin’ way.
That’s all for now folks!
Back to agent hunting. And when I have this audio-project ready, you’ll be the first to know.

Hey, good stuff, thanks Heidi! Well, I guess you will do better with the horror agent. Sarah totally freaked on the insomnia book too! We had such a great visit. Hope you guys have one planned soon too (?) So, meanwhile Lots of love coming your way Auntie Pam
Aw, thanks Auntie Pam! It would be nice to come up to your place again- last time we were there it was so fantastic! We are off to Kelowna for a trip with friends this weekend. Thanks for stopping by and the lovely note! Love you too. ❤
