There's been quite the dearth of writing news on this blog--no one knows that better than me. But I must tell you--I'm bursting to tell you--that after several frustrating, some would even say mind-boggling (me!), months searching for an agent, I have found one. And I couldn't be more thrilled with her.
I spoke to her on the phone earlier this week--it was a lovely chat!--and afterwards I felt like I had truly found my ideal match. She is charming and sweet, and she loves my voice and my story. Hooray!
The whole situation is really rather serendipitous. I stumbled across her name and profile a while ago in association with a writers' conference, and I filed it away for the time when I would start querying agents. So then recently, just as I'd decided to call it quits with the agent hunt and turn my attention to submitting to publishers directly, and maybe, eventually, self-publishing, round 2, I found the information I'd ferreted away. I decided to give it one more shot. And now, here I am, happy as a clam, to tell you that she is now my agent! One month turnaround time from snail-mail query to done deal! Unbelievable!
So...to sum up...there may be some writing news posted here occasionally in the coming months.
