News! And The First Post In Which I Use The Words “My” and “Agent!”

Sooo my title probably ruins the surprise a little bit, huh? This is the news I have been promising you on twitter and facebook! I’ve signed with an agent!

Me!

A real, live agent! Not to be confused with a not-live one. Like a plastic one. Or rubber.

My story is a short, fast-paced, crazy-lucky one. The condensed version: I received offers! And I accepted one from Sara Megibow of the Nelson Literary Agency!!!!

(I am also REALLY bad at photoshop)

You all probably remember when Sara was a guest judge here on the Sisters in Scribe blog, yes? If not, that post is here. Sara is fantastic! She’s professional, assertive, super nice, and about a zillion other gushy things. And now she's my agent!

*confetti*

And to celebrate, I’m giving away books from Nelson Agency authors, over at my blog! For full giveaway details, and the slightly longer story of how Sara and I came together, check out this post.

(Very) Happy Thursday!

  19. I just JUST stumbled onto your site, which is fortuitous and fabulous because I JUST (one less just than the site-stumbling) ALSO signed with a book agent. So I am very newly introduced to the YA author world... and the fact that there is such a COMMUNITY. It is really cool.. and awesome... and wonderful.

    So anyway -- just wanted to say congratulations, and good luck! I'm excited to watch your trajectory!

  20. Yes, Lacey. I knew what your news was. If I don't try to work it out it just pops into my mind. As soon as you tweeted me I had it ;) I usually miss my own stuff because I'm emotional about things I want. I'll teach you how to do it.
