And the agent is. . .

Okay, the larger than life lady has sung a ballad and I finally feel its safe to say I HAVE AN AGENT! Her name is Carolyn Swayze with Carolyn Swayze Literary Agency. I met her at the PNWA Conference in Seattle and I'm super excited to be working with her.

Carolyn and I had a wonderful chat today, went through the next few steps to get to publication and she really took her time with me, not even rushing for the phones I could hear ringing in the background!

My #1 job for the next month is to get my draft of book #2 near completion if not completed. I have to put together a synopsis for book #2 and would be helpful if I had a synopsis for book #3. Then in September, we (as in Carolyn) will be submitting to the editors that I met at the conference in Seattle who were very interested in it. At first I thought that September was a ways off, then realized we are already a week into August.

Crap. I have a lot of writing to do, but I couldn't be more excited! Thanks to all of you out there who've supported and loved me, despite myself! Could not be here without all of you :D You might think I'm thanking you guys every other blog, but its important to me for you to know what an impact you have all had on my writing journey.

With that, I have to get back at it.
