Okay, so I guess some of you are wondering if you've read this correctly—well, you did! But maybe a few noticed that a while ago I removed the “represented by” from my bio and I was only a YA fiction writer—period. So yeah, I parted ways with my former agent—who I still think is great, just not the perfect fit for me—and after that, I spent the few weeks getting dizzy on the query-go-round.
And now, after a week of tough decisions between offers of representation, I get to announce that I couldn’t be HAPPIER! Because I think Lauren is AWESOME! I love her editorial suggestions and I loved talking to her clients, who by the way ADORE her! (I mean this, because I asked three of them to tell me Lauren’s weaknesses and they said she was just perfect!). I think I’m SO lucky!
So guys, meet my agent!! (I’m stoked! Can’t you tell?) I’m now represented by Lauren MacLeod of the Strothman Agency!! =D
(Wheeeee! Isn't she amazing?)
That's fantastic! HUGE CONGRATS!!!ReplyDelete

I've been a horrible beta responder!! I'm sooooo sorry. I went through one of the busiest application seasons at work (I'm an admissions coach) and was editing 5-10 essays every day for the last month. I thought about you all the time and felt horrible!
Let me know if you have an updated MS you want me to look at (it was the first 7 or 7500 words I think?) or if you just want me to review the old one.
CONGRATS! :) A nice way to roll into the holidays and start a new year.ReplyDelete
