Roller Coaster UP. Roller Coaster down.

I am strapped in tight and the agent-search-coaster-car has left the platform. There is nothing to do now but hold on and enjoy the ride whenever possible; because, I have to endure the ride one way or the other. At this moment, it is a durational event.

The second agent had initially wanted a query and the first three chapters. Having read those fifty-five pages or so, she wanted to see the whole manuscript.
