This is mostly because yesterday I got a call. From an agent. A fabulous agent with a really wonderful agency. YAY! I'm still so excited and I'm breaking sentence structure rules!
She offered representation! She said I was wonderfully "talented" (this might be my new favorite word). And that she's super excited about my middle grade novel, Underground! And that all the people at the agency thought my middle grade voice was perfect!
Anyway, I can't say yet who the offering agent is because I have a couple of full manuscripts still being considered by other agents. But I think I should be able to say for sure by the middle of the month.
Anyway, I'm pretty excited about this! It kind of feels like I won the lottery! I know a good part of this was just luck and I feel very, very, lucky. It doesn't mean my book will be published, but it does move it one step closer :)
So, if you want to be my friend and follow me through the perils of editor submissions and (hopefully) beyond, welcome.
