Rhonda McKnight I think this picture has more of my smile. I did get everything to the publishers last week and I sent my partial to the agent yesterday. Nerve wracking. Now I just have to finish two papers for school and then I'm on vacation for a week. Hallelujah! Thought about coming to Arizona to go to the Grand Canyon. I love those views in your homestate.

Michelle Nice profile picture. I liked the old one, too. Did you get everything to the publisher without a hitch?
