Last Monday, I am happy to say, I accepted an offer of representation from Emily Keyes at L. Perkins Agency. There are many great things about this, not the least of which is the time I can now spend writing that I previously spent researching and submitting to agents and editors. There were also the excellent announcements on Twitter.
I've already gained some unexpected perks from this relationship. Thanks to this tweet by my agent
I discovered QMx and now I have this on my desk
and this on my living room mantle.
(Yes, the wall is unfinished. My life is a work in progress. Did you really expect the house to be any different?)
The statue of Wash led to this brief and excellent twitter exchange.
I don't know yet how Emily will work out as my agent. We haven't been working together long enough to say. I can tell you that she is pretty awesome as a person and I look forward to working with her.
In the words of the lovely Kristen Lamb, We Are Not Alone, and that, my friends, is pretty cool.
Any Firefly fans out there? Any closet geeks? I would love to hear from you!
