I’m officially an agented author now!
Now all those weeks of the kids having no clean socks; the refrigerator being mostly empty; missing most of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade; ignoring the kids’ hints that maybe I should decorate for Christmas; having to go out to eat again because I was too busy at the computer; missing the last part of Ricky’s “The Walking Dead” family marathon; and using up every last second of my vacation time … well, it all seems worth it!
I scrambled to meet my November 30 deadline to finish writing the next manuscript, then a January 2 deadline to turn in the polished manuscript to the next Golden Heart contest, and also mentioned to the agent who I really wanted (squeeee!) – Jill Marsal at Marsal-Lyon Literary Agency – that I’d send her the new ms on Jan. 2 also.
It took zero-ing out on vacation time and that burying-myself-in-a-cave thing, but I did it.
And she called me the next morning to offer representation!
Here we goooooooooo …
You go baby!
Somehow I’m thinking this means even more computer time…and that is GREAT! ! !
Laurie, this is so awesome! Congratulations! I remember you were working on writing back when I was at Lifescript, so I’m extra thrilled that you not only continued to pursue this goal but that you achieved it. I can’t wait to see what comes of this!
Laurie is going to be published this year. It’s an awesome book. Hot hero, excellent conflict, wonderful heroine….yes she will!
Still so, so, so excited for you!!
