I am pleased to announce that as of today I am represented by Mark McVeigh of the McVeigh Agency. We will soon be working together to get my novel, MOSTLY NORMAL into stellar condition to sub to publishers.

I am THRILLED with my amazing, new agent, whom I have been in contact with since I began revising my MS last fall. He's not only been wonderful through this process, but he has acted with incredible professionalism towards any other agents who might have been involved and respect towards my vision as the final editor in my manuscript. I would recommend him to anyone.

*passes out now*

YAY!

Thanks everyone! I've been riding on the news for a few days and it still feels very unreal.

Now I have to wait for his notes until I get to work. He told me to just take it easy, and I thought, RELAX??? what? O.O

Now is a good time to give up coffee.



backslashbaby, I think you will like it! It will be very interesting. I have a lot to say.

Thanks guys!

Thanks RobJ--I'm really excited about all the work that is coming up too! More edits to make to get it into shape. In all the excitement I hit on a great idea for another book as well, and I am thrilled to start planning that! I LOVE this job.


Lisa, thanks! It's so cool to be moving on to the next steps!

CONGRATS!!! You're a familiar face to me here on AW and I know you've worked really hard...here's to your success!! So happy for you : )

amyashley

Thanks!

Thanks, Suzan I know your face too!

I've been working hard on edits this week and loving it! Lots of fun (I'm a workaholic) and I'm even more confident about my choice. I'm actually really glad that it took a while between sending the MS to betas, then Mark, then finalizing things. I think it's given me enough distance that I can see where some polishing and pacing changes need to be made. It's cool to work closely WITH someone on revisions. A great new experience.

I love this industry the more I get into it even for all it's blood, sweat, and tears.

Good luck to everyone still looking!

WOO! I read this the other day and meant to write congrats, but I got distracted by a here kitty kitty! Dammit, did it again.

Those kitties would be evil if it weren't for their sheer adorable fuzziness. My alarm has been replaced by 4 year-old and purring fluff cat. I prefer this way.
