I Have an AGENT!!!

The past couple of weeks have been an absolute whirlwind, but I can now officially say, I HAVE AN AGENT!!! It's happened! And I might still be in shock. I mean, how long have I dreamed of this day? I found someone who loves my story just as much as I do. Who GETS it. Who is sweet, and funny, honest, professional, and just so wonderful I want to lace up my skates, hop onto the ice, and fling myself into a flying camel spin. (Considering I haven't been on the ice in years, probably not the best idea, but right now I feel like I could do it!) EEEEP!!

I've signed with Marietta Zacker of the Nancy Gallt Literary Agency! I'm agent-buddies with the fabulous Hilary Wagner! And I'm agency-mates with Rick Riordan! Y'all.... I just... I can't even....

Marietta and Nancy represent so many great authors, I look forward to familiarizing myself with them, and I feel so honored and blessed to be added to their client list! Could I possibly add any more exclamation points to this post?! Just a few more!! And I'll post the whole story soon, for those of you who are curious!

A big THANK YOU to all of my followers, blogging buddies, and my amazing critique partners and betas (KM, Kristi, Kim, Amy and Cari). Your comments, encouragement and critiques have kept me going. Much love!

Never give up on your goals. Ever.
