    I HAVE AN AGENT! OMG!

    AHHH GUYS GUYS GUYS I'M SO EXCITED

    TOO EXCITED FOR SENSIBLE WORDS REALLY SO HERE'S A PRESS RELEASE (OMG MY FIRST PRESS RELEASE)

    EMMA MAREE URQUHART JOINS JJLA
    Emma Maree Urquhart has joined the John Jarrold Literary Agency. Her new novel ALL THE BROKEN THINGS reads like Pacific Rim with a Scottish mythology kick. It might also be viewed as a twisted SF version of TWILIGHT. Disabled engineer Anna is metal from the waist-down, badass from the toes up, and Scottish through and through. She patches up glossy military war machines built to fight supernatural monsters. When a monster she saves becomes dangerously obsessed with her, Anna sets out to turn the tables on the increasingly violent Enli. But there are monsters on all sides, and her fight uncovers secrets about the machines that threaten everything she’s been fighting for.

    Her debut children’s fantasy novel DRAGON TAMERS was self-published in the UK when Emma was 13, with sales of over 35,000 copies and has been traditionally published in Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Swedish, Greek, and Portuguese. Emma is now in her late 20s and is a software tester, spending her days finding creative ways to break websites and apps and her nights finding creative ways to break fictional characters. She lives in the north of Scotland and on the weekends can be found learning roller derby, binge drinking tea and taking long brainstorming walks in the woods.

    “The immediacy of Emma’s writing grabbed me straight away, from the first page,” said John Jarrold. “There were times I wanted to scream at Anna, others that I wanted to hug her. And the world and creatures that Emma has imagined are totally believable, while the story unwinds in ways that are entirely unexpected and heart stopping. Brilliant!”
    I CAN'T EVEN

    I DON'T

    I JUST

    ...I worked so damn hard to get here. So many manuscripts, so many revisions, so many rejections.

    I can't believe it. I hope to see many more of you AW lovelies with similarly awesome announcements soonI can't wait for a publishing future where we can all share our worlds.

    I'll see you all there soon, aye? Don't stop writing. Don't let the bad bits get you down. (My god, the stress that this last week involved, I was a wreck.) Keep at it and keep working.

    Which is what I'll be doing, as soon as I stop buzzing around like a madwoman. Eeeeeeeee.

    EDIT: To pay it forward a bit, I've posted my query over here. Query stats on post #26.
