The search is over

Hi everyone,

I’m delighted to say that yesterday I made my choice and signed with a new agent. We have a follow-up call set for Thursday so I’m going to wait to make the official announcement and tell you who it is after that. For now, I have a lot of new forms to complete.

Thanks again to everyone who helped me choose the new picture for my website. The winner is me on the sofa with my arms folded. I’ve asked Kathy Temean to make the change. I very much appreciated all your sweet comments along with your preferences. Wow!

Yesterday I finished (and sent off to my new agent) a new collection of poems. It’s different from anything I’ve done or have seen in the market and I’m pleased with it.

Today I think I’ll fill out forms and, if time permits, get back to revising the middle grade novel I’ve been working on over the past three years.

I don’t know when I’m going to get to some of the other ideas in my head. I still need to finish the book with Laura Robb but we’re waiting for word from our editor before I go ahead with that one. And Mary Jo Fresch and I continue to wait to hear from the editor for our project.

    • Thank you, dear Jeanne. Sandy irons my shirts. Sometimes I wish she would let me take them off first, but I’m too afraid of her to ask.

  1. Congrats on finding a new agent – I know you’ve spent most of your life without one, and just came upon your first about a year or two ago, wasn’t it? So now a brand-new person to work beside you is exciting. All best wishes for success!

    • Yes, Matt, it’s still relatively new turf for me. I love Karen Grencik to death and will miss her. The new guy has some big shoes to fill, but I have faith he will. It just takes some time to develop mutual trust and confidence in any kind of partnership. Thank you for the good wishes.
