Agent News and Happy Thanksgiving!!

I know, I know.  As soon as I promise to stop neglecting the blog, I do...again.  But this time I have an even better excuse.  I am now officially represented by Amy Tipton of Signature Literary Agency.

That's right, peeps.  I have an agent!


 
It’s exciting and sort of terrifying at the same time. But all it took was not giving up. Write, query, revise, and repeat. Just keep doing that and you can’t go wrong.

So I’ve been revising my current manuscript upon the direction of my agent (it’s not weird that I whisper that to myself frequently), which happens to be Middle Grade, and no I won’t tell you anything else except if you’ve ever read this blog then you know it won’t be about rainbows and unicorns. That’s not how I roll. But it will be funny.

We should be ready to go on submission after the first of the year.

I will still be doing blog posts as often as I can and updating everyone on what’s going on. I’ve been writing seriously for almost five years now, and I can tell you that I would never have gotten this far without the support of my online writer friends. You guys are the wind beneath my wings and all that other mushy stuff. Special thanks to these peeps:

L.G. Smith-http://bardsandprophets.blogspot.com/
Jennifer Hillier-http://www.jenniferhillier.org/
And like a hundred others. Every blog follower I have, every person who ever commented or said an encouraging word, and for all those who didn’t.
Thank you.

So Happy Thanksgiving and remember this before you eat the pumpkin pies:

    And have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! Lots to be thankful for this year.

  2. I'm so thrilled for you! Congratulations! Good luck on the revisions and on submissions, and Happy Thanksgiving! (Luckily, I like pecan pie, not pumpkin, otherwise I'd be damaged for life. :P )

  5. Sooooo late to the party! I have woo hoo'd you everywhere else, but not here! So WOOOO HOOOOO! I never doubted it would happen. Not for a minute. And I'm not just saying that because I was right (and who doesn't love to be right). Congrats again, my lovely friend! You deserve this and so much more. And I get to watch it all happen, so that makes me the lucky one. *hugs*

It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
