I HAVE AN AGENT!
And not just any agent. I have a wonderful agent. She's kind, professional, and she has an incredible vision for my book. Emmanuelle Morgen is with Judith Ehrlich Literary Management. You can read her bio by clicking >>here<<.
I still can't quite believe this myself. I wonder how long this news will take to sink in. I've been walking around the house, doing my regular thing, feeling totally normal, and then it will hit me all over again: "I have an agent!"
I'm sure I'll get my act together and be able to fill you in on all the details soon: what it was like to persevere through countless rejections, endless rewrites, reams of feedback. This road to publication isn't an easy one. We walk it because we are determined to succeed. To be honest, I think I'm just as terrified of the future (submitting to real editors!) as I am giddy with excitement. But that's all part of the journey. I'm learning to face my fears.
The Dashingly Handsome Sidekick and I haven't had a chance to celebrate yet because it's (*cue funeral dirge*) football season. But maybe we'll get a chance this weekend after the big televised game tonight (you read that right--the Mustangs are going Live!). After all, we get three days to party (very responsibly), right? I hope you all have a marvelous weekend.
Now I must descend into the realms of MASSIVE REVISIONS (well, maybe not MASSIVE, but I do have to change a few things). Thankfully, this is not a dark realm. I'm excited to make my book stronger. I'll keep you posted....
