Exciting News! On April 19th, 2018, I officially signed with Naomi Davis at Bookends Literary Agency. It’s been one helluva journey, and I could not be more excited to have such a kick-ass agent in my corner. It was all worth it: the pain, the heart ache, the constant rejections. And believe me, there were constant rejections. A YUGE wall of steady rejections with the occasional glimmer of hope here and there over the last nine years. But I never gave up. I just kept writing. As I state in an interview I did with the agency:
I started querying in 2009, and queried six different manuscripts until Naomi offered representation on the right manuscript. I sent out 236 queries in total across that nine-year span, got a total of 66 requests, but all it took was the right book landing in the hands of the right agent. All it takes is one “yes.”
So now, it’s time to wait.
And write my next book.
