project: Sing Me Away (contemporary YA)
I don't know how to write this post.
I feel like I've been hoping and waiting and working and crossing all my fingers and toes for so long, so much, that you'd think I'd know exactly what to say now that it's happened. But I don't. My words are all gone.
I have an agent.
I feel like an impostor saying that. The past week I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, thinking that someone was going to come and tap me on the shoulder and remind me that actually, no, I'm still in the midst of the slushpile, still not knowing how to go from "unfortunately I didn't fall in love with this the way I'd hoped," to "I'd like to represent you." To be honest even now that everything is all official I still feel that way.
But it has actually really happened and I'm a little all over the place not knowing what I'm supposed to say in this blog post. So I'll just say this: I'm represented by David Dunton, of Harvey Klinger, Inc. Sing Me Away so perfectly fits what he represents and I'm very, very happy to be working with not only an agent, but this agent in particular because he seems to just "get" my book.
So that is the news. :)
