Prayer Request

January 28, 2008:

Well, after over a year of waiting on AMG, they gave me a NO. So, back to the drawing board. I'll be working on revamping my proposal and looking for an agent. Keep praying that FAIRIES will find the perfect home.

Thanks everyone.
****UPDATE****
January 5, 2008:
Still no word. Just thought I'd let you know to keep on praying!
Blessings!

October 15, 2007:

I received an e-mail from the editor that said my book is being held on to for a little more review – to be sure it is something the committee would truly be interested in.

SO...keep praying my friends!

********



Hi everyone! I have some exciting news...

AMG Publishing (publisher of Bryan Davis' Dragons in Our Midst Series, a Christian Young Adult Fantasy) is taking my book to their new products review board in July or August! The fiction acquisitions editor said his fantasy reader loved my proposal (which included part one) and highly recommends it.
Please be praying that the board members' hearts will be open to the idea. The word 'fairies' usually brings to mind secular magic. Pray they will realize the opportunities of evangelism that can happen through my book.

God bless!

Hi Mimi, I am so excited for you! Praying this will be the answer you've been looking for! I gotta point out that the month is June, not August. ;-) Love you, Margie

M. C. Pearson said...

My loving sis, Margie!

Yes, I know it's June...I just changed it to August so it will stay up on top of the blog until I hear from AMG. LOL. You crack me up.

Pia said...

that's great news! praying for you mimi...

Kate said...

Congrats! We'll keep our fingers crossed!

Lovely blog!

Jaime H. said...

I thought of you today. I'm reading The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones. I picked it up at the library in the YA section. I'm enjoying it immensely. Have you read it?

Jaime H. said...

It's VERY good (it involves Shakespeare, which never hurts me!). I finished reading it yesterday, and what do you know...there's a sequel (though I don't know if it's been published, yet, as this one was in the new books section). It ends on a huge cliffhanger. I think you'll enjoy it.

curious servant said...

I hope you do well.

I was going through old posts of mine and noticed your comment.

God bless.

Hi Mimi
Congratulations!
I'm praying for you =)

Mimi, this is GREAT news. It shows that your work is at the level to woo editors. This is true even if the board rejects your story. Please remember that at the committee meeting there will be the bean counters, sales and marketing, and all sorts of people whose job it is to say why the publisher can't afford to publish you. It's hard for a newcomer to get through this committee, but every publisher author out there had to do it at some time. So hang in there and be happy with where you are, even if this answer is no. The next commitee's answer might be yes.

Hi, I'm Dee said...

Great news, Mimi. Bryan is an awesome guy and I have enjoyed what AMG did with his stories. It would be great for you to be there. Fantastic news. Praying for you.

In the near future I would love for you to guestblog at Christian Fiction around the holidays. Share your pixies with us.

OT After you conclude this series I see you writing about a godfairy diva named davidae. Just want to throw that out there:)

Anyway...I wanted to ask...are you working on a sequel to this?

M. C. Pearson said...

Thanks guys...keep praying!

Yes, Jaimie...I'm about 1/3 way into the second book. :-)

Jaime said...

Mimi! Have you read The Fairie Path by Frewin Jones, yet?? Book II (The Lost Queen) is out. Only one county library in the whole state here is getting it in, so I have to reserve my copy this weekend. I hear it's better than the first, though!

Jaime said...

Ack! Change the date on this to get it back to the top!

:-)

audrey` said...

How are you, Mimi?
Thinking of you =)

Pia said...

Jaime said...

I had the 2-disk special edition. What was yours?

Hope you had a nice Christmas! Update here on what's going on!

cube said...

I'll add my good wishes to those above. Hope your Christmas & New Year's were joyful.

Jaime said...

*hug*

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Sorry things did not work out. Better luck next time.

David Meigs said...

Mimi, NO WAY! This feels like a gut kick to me too. But I got to believe it would/will be the right pick for another publisher. It’s an excellent novel and I loved reading it. I know a lot of teens that would too.

I guess we need to step up the prayers!
