Hey y'all :D

I am thrilled to announce that I've accepted an offer of representation from the fabulous JL Stermer at N.S. Bienstock, a powerhouse agency for journalists with a growing list of fiction authors.

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. With JL's guidance, I am accepting an offer of publication from Bloomsbury's newest imprint, Bloomsbury Spark. My debut novel, VIRAL, will be released as part of Spark's launch this coming winter(!).

It's been a wild, crazy, glorious week. And I am so happy to share this news on AW, because I don't know if I would've gotten this far without the support of the community here.

:hooray:

That's fantastic!What is one thing you did really right to make this happen?

I wrote and revised a book till it shone like a new penny? Probably the same thing anyone else who gets an agent and book deal does. Good luck! :)
