So what's new you ask?????

O.K I can't hold it in any longer.

Without going into any details, I have something to share.....




Just a little news... (why do you think I have been so quiet the last 2 weeks!!)




Ready?...









You sure?...









I have an agent!


A fabulous, amazing, top, wonderful, lovely, brilliant agent with an amazing agency.

*Breathe*

I can't say WHO or HOW or WHAT yet but I just had to share the news. I need to wait until it the formal agreement is accepted on both sides. Hopefully I can tell the whole story next week ;)

But it's official, I have an agent.

I will say that over the last 2 weeks (like all of a sudden out of the blue) , I got amazing, wonderful offers from some brilliant agents. Yesterday, I finally chose one...after many sleepless nights, 12,000 "Oh My Gods", 5,000 "Holy Shits!" (yikes sorry for the explicative) , 6,000 pinches to myself , 50 phone calls to family & friends (twice!), and 9,000 tears of joy.

Oh My God!

Holy Shit! (oops I did it again - damn you Britney Spears!)

*Pinch*

*Sniff*

Can you believe it?

I have an agent.

Wow!

I'll share more next week.

YAY!

Oh yeah, did I mention I have an agent?

O.K. I'm going to go cry again now.

Wooohoooo!!! Yes, you deserve the multiple exclamation marks. Congratulations. I'm so happy for you. Just make sure you let us know when to look for your work in publication. :) Hey, if you're interested (and able to), how about doing a guest piece on my blog about getting an agent, prepping your work for publication, and getting published? I realize this is getting way ahead of things yet, but if you're up for it later, I'd be honored.
