In the past few days, you may have been able to tell I had some big news to share. Now that it’s official, I’m thrilled to announce:
I have an agent! **insert squee here!**
Sarah is amazing. She’s been involved with the publishing industry for more than twenty-five years, first at Collins (before it became HarperCollins). She’s worked with writers such as Judy Blume, Gary Paulsen, and Meg Cabot (um, double squee??). She was an editor for years, so her editorial feedback is invaluable, and she sells directly to both U.S. and U.K. publishing houses, as Greenhouse started in London. Greenhouse also has a sister company, the Rights People, that handles foreign rights. They pretty much do it all.
Right now I’m kind of in shock. But in a good way.
The plan is to revise and start subbing at the end of June/beginning of July. Until then, I’m hard at work on my WIP, the male POV YA ghost story. I thought of a scene last night that seriously creeped me out. I almost couldn’t get to sleep.
