So, I did it....

11 1/2 years of trying to get published, and I got an agent yesterday. She's so enthusiastic about Hot Shot, and I think she'll keep me focused. I owe a big thanks to my friend Diane for recommending her agent, and to Trish for encouraging me to submit one late night when we were emailing. From submission to the phone call was just under a month - the fastest thing that's ever happened to me in this business!

So she wants revisions to Hot Shot. I'm taking the rest of the week off from writing, I think, to clean my house and catch up on life before I dive into those this weekend.

Wow, thanks, guys!!!! This is just really overwhelming!!!

The agent is Emily Sylvan Kim, who just started Prospect Agency. She's very excited about this book, which makes me excited about it (remember, I was hating it two weeks ago). And she's fast, lemme tell you!

Congratulations Mary!! Woo Hoo!!!!!! Now you've got someone else fighting to sell your work too. And even better, it's someone who knows what she's doing! Can't wait to pass the champagne when you sell!
