Guess What? I HAVE AN AGENT!!!!!!!

 

OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! *deep breaths* OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG !!!!
Yes, it actually happened....
I


HAVE


AN


AGENT!!!!!
*twirls around in a circle*
This has happened so fast, I can barely believe it.  I came back from RWA Nationals at the beginning of the month with my list of the top five agents I wanted to query. I signed up for Query Tracker, sent out the letters, and settled in for the wait. I'd been down the road with my first novel and prepared myself for the long haul.
Well, I totally didn't need to spend that money for that QueryTracker premium membership (although, I highly recommend it--great program) because...
Two weeks later, I got an offer of representation from none other than ...
The fabulous Sara Megibow of the Nelson Literary Agency!!!!!
Needless to say, I accepted. She had great things to say about my book and has terrific input on how to make it even stronger. I'm so looking forward to working with her.
Now, my head is still spinning, so I apologize that this post is neither insightful nor coherent. I promise I will totally go in to details about how it all happened, how blogging played a part, which book I was querying, and what's going on now.  
Later.  
Right now, though, I'm too busy doing this....
