Making Progress

What a busy week! Between Christmas shopping and making cookies, writing has taken a backseat a few days this week. But--I have my non-fiction proposal close enough to finished that I emailed query letters to three agents today. I haven't decided whether to be excited and hopeful or just plain nervous.

I've had a positive response from several writer friends about the project and truly see a need for a book like this. Very few women I've talked to about uterine fibroids have heard of them, or if they have or have had uterine fibroids, don't really fit the profile of those who are at risk. In light of recent medical recommendations regarding the frequency of mammograms and Pap tests, the likelihood of women forgoing an annual pelvic exam is high. Who wants to have one when segments of the medical community are implying they aren't necessary? Those annual exams are how most uterine fibroids are discovered. Can you tell this is a hot issue with me?! Maybe an editor out there will let me have my say!

Wish me luck!
