Nope. I am totally not pregnant. Thank goodness.
But I do have some exciting news that I’ve been sitting on for a week. I SIGNED WITH AN AGENT! The amazing Emily Keyes from L. Perkins Agency offered representation and I signed with her today! I am totally over the moon. For realzies, guys.
Many of you know I’ve written a few books, and she’ll be representing my book WONDER BREAD. She will now go out to publishers and pitch them my book to see if we can get this sucker published. It’s a HUGE deal because without an agent, my dream of getting published with most any publishing house is only that: a dream.
And Emily couldn’t be more supportive and amazing. I’ve now had the chance to have a couple of phone conversations with her and man, do I feel lucky. She’s incredibly knowledgeable about the industry, trends, and what editors are looking for. She has already told me who she hopes to pitch for WONDER BREAD. And she talked me through where some of her other clients are in regards to getting published, and hearing her speak of them with such faith in their work makes me know I’m lucky to have her behind me. She’ll be a hell of a champion for WONDER BREAD. I can already tell.
So, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that once I get this bad boy all polished up, a publishing house out there will take me on. Thanks for your support during this process and I will keep you posted!!
And now, the song to which I used to dance in the mirror when I was ten. Only for moments like this:
Check out those freaking nightgowns.
