It’s OFFICIAL!! SQUEEE…I have signed with a new agent: Jennifer Mishler of Literary Counsel.

I know some of you might be like WTH, I thought you already had an agent? Well, to keep it short and sweet, we parted ways a couple of months ago. There was no dramatic break-up or anything we just had different visions for my stories/writing. I wanted to stay true to who I was as an author and decided it was time to move on.

All I can say is that Jennifer is FABULOUS and she loves my stories as much as I do. The good thing about going through this before is that I had a VERY good idea of what I wanted/needed this time around. So when I entered the query trenches, I made sure I kept those ideas in the back of my mind.

I remember the first email I received after Jennifer read my full. She told me how much she loved TLOM. She indicated she’d wanted to read through it again to take some notes.

Then came the next email that indicated she wanted to talk with me on the phone (holy wanted to faint at this point). Our call went great (well except for the part where I actually forgot one of my character’s names—LOL, luckily she was cool about that). Jennifer asked if I’d be willing to revise a couple things. I agreed. I did some brainstorming with my crit group on Friday night-Saturday then went to work. I finished the revision up rather quickly then on Weds I got another email indicating she liked the changes and she offered representation. At this point, I had to get with the rest of the agents who had fulls/partials. After some phone calls/emails/chats with agents, Jennifer felt like the best fit. Not only did she “get” my stories, but she knew the YA market.

SO VERY THRILLED to be working with Jenn!

And on a side note, I am blogging at Astraea Press today. If you stop by you’ll be able to see a pic of me dressed as Princess Leia (hehehe). GO STAR WARS!!!!

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just can’t wait for it to be over? OMG, that was THIS week for me. Sigh.

We lost our 10 year old German Shepherd on the 13th (R.I.P REX). My hubby called me at work to let me know he passed away. The day before Valentine’s Day, guys–sniffle. We’d gotten Rex when our youngest son, Chase, was a baby. So he grew up with the kids.

So sad.

My other son had to have a bad spot cut/removed from his face on Weds. It went well and you can barely see where it’d been. The doctor did a great job. So that was good.

Work has been insane (day job). Hopefully won’t have to deal with any more angry people (LOL). Ahhhh…

On the writing front: I’ve started working on a new story (yay). After a few months of no writing at all, it’s so nice to dive into things. I’m hoping to start working on chapter 2 pretty soon, although, I’m expecting edits any day now on TFGF. Which, I believe will be releasing in March (HOLY CRAP–so excited).

I’m also waiting to hear back on some things. LOL–I know, I seem to say that every time I blog. But hey, it really should be any day now that I get some news, right? Here’s hoping.

I got my bookmarks in the mail for TFGF this week. I signed over 500 of them to send down to RT (with my publisher) along with over 500 Bookcover Trading Cards. I’m also going to be giving some away on my blog in the next month or so. So definitely keep an eye on info for that.

I have to try to set up some blog tours/interviews for TFGF (which I love to do–LOL). It’s fun meeting people and chatting.

Loved TVD and Secret Circle last night. I’m mad that they’re going on hiatus until March though (grrrr). Don’t they know that I won’t have anything to do on Thursday?

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I have Monday off of work for President’s Day, so that’s FREAKING AWESOME.
