I've been keeping this under my hat for what feels like forever, but today I can finally tell you all - I am now represented by Louise Fury of The Bent Agency! :partyguy:

I sent her a query in July on the recommendation of another agent, but she was closed to queries and I was gutted - but then I entered #PitMad on Twitter in September and she favourited my tweet ("#PitMad (https://twitter.com/hashtag/PitMad?src=hash) #YA (https://twitter.com/hashtag/YA?src=hash) 6yrs ago Phee’s dad abducted Isaac Woods. She helped. Now Isaac is 16 & Dad wants rid. P will do anything - bad things - to save him."). One phonecall later (where I made a total fool of myself, got thoroughly overexcited, and I think went into shock a little) on January 20th I signed the contract!

I couldn't have done it without all of you awesome people here at AW (particularly my beta readers Netz, The_Ink_Goddess, Witch_turtle, Catherine Queen et al). Thank you!

OMG AMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :partyguy: So so so thrilled for you! And yay for being a #PitMad success (me too!) I can't wait to hear what you and Louise do together. L is a rockstar…and you are too.

Ah! Couldn't be more happy. You worked so hard. Tirelessly. On so many manuscripts.
