My Big News: The Publishing Road Just Got a Little Shorter


So. News.

I . . . am now an agented author. :D

BANGARANG GUYS. BANGARANG.

Tuesday I officially became Marlene Stringer's newest client! I am still. Freaking. Out. About. It. (!!!!)

Details? Here, I wrote a song:

I queried Marlene Stringer less than two weeks ago with THE PAPER MAGICIAN, which is the ninth book I've written and the sixth I've queried. She asked me for the full an hour later, and eight days after that asked me for a phone call.

THE phone call.

TEARS GUYS.

I have been working for this for seven years, and I am ecstatic that I've managed to get on board with such an experienced and wonderful agent!

The road to publishing just got a heck of a lot shorter. :)
