Thanks! I met Cherry at World Fantasy Con and she REALLY impressed me. Aside from being a very classy lady, she works non-stop and is a storehouse of knowledge about the industry and some of my favorite writers from the past.

The stories she tells...

She has a very good rep.

She's very awesome. She also reps Gini Koch (JeanneTGC) from AW. Even before she offered me representation, she spent a lot of time at WFC explaining details of the business, how she interacts with editors and agents and so forth. We had a great time. When it came time to pitch her, though, she was all business. The woman is just brilliant.

She became my dream agent after the first day. :)

I'm especially happy with the way you've managed to thumb your nose at Mercury in retrograde and ending 2010 with a bang. :D

Ah, the Bunneh O'Doom is tuckered out with all the celebrating.

Now I just need to find a worthy successor. Obviously, the Doom Bunneh moniker and attitude work. Just about time to make him work for some other writer, I'm thinking.

DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

The Bunneh O'Doom and kitteh successor.

The Bunneh O'Doom drowning his sorrow after the requeries get form rejections too.

I can keep going all night if you want.

Thanks, guys! I really appreciate it.

This morning, reality set in. *Alas for the idea of taking time off to celebrate* As soon as I begin, end, and wrap my Christmas shopping, I have work to do on my manuscripts.

But it does feel different, you know?

Gah, forgot to congratulate you here -- feels more official this way, too. LOL

Anyhoo, megahuge congrats, Cel! :snoopy: You have worked damned hard, and I'm very happy for you! (and I remember that book, btw, which was so *cool* - so I'm hoping you find a taker for that and SOON)

mscelina

Aw, thanks! You were one of my first betas on ToS--you and Bubastes, I think. So, I owe you a lot. :)

You're welcome, but it was pretty solid -- I didn't have much to do but read and enjoy! :Hug2:

The invoice for snickerdoodle/vodka payment is in the mail. :D

That pic has been my Christmas avatar for years. When the babies get a little older, though, I'll have to forgo it so I'm enjoying it while I can.

Yep. Christmas definitely came early, and instead of with a fat, jolly, white-bearded old elf the holiday came with a teensy little spitfire of a woman who comes up to my chin and talks a mile a minute.

An illusion I was only too happy to see shattered!

Thanks!
