There are the everyday moments, the ones you never notice.
Then there are the awful ones that wet your pillow with tears.
There are the moments that fill you with precious memories.
And there are moments you LIVE for.
I've just had a LIVE FOR moment!
Yeah, I'm totally freaking, flipping out. And dancing around the house.
Because I can now say I have an AGENT!!!!!!
I am totally thrilled to announce that I've signed with Jeff Ourvan from the Jennifer Lyons Literary Agency. Not only is he amazingly cool and knowledgeable, but he loves my work.
Here's me freaking out:
Thankfully I calmed down so I could sign the contract:
And here I am with the smile that's glued to my face:
There are some people that I MUST thank because they have been a huge part of all of this and are full of pure awesomeness:
My hubby- You never doubted.
Julianne, my sister and muse- So many late night phone calls listening and solving my 'issues'. You always believed in me.
Beth Revis- You were there when I first started writing (dear Lord, poor you), and you've been my cheerleader and great friend through all of this. And yes, your critiques are always spot on.
Casey McCormick- You never let me give up even when I wanted to. Thank you for reading those awful drafts and never allowing me to write less than my absolute best. There are no words for how awesome you are.
Ellen Oh- My Korean expert! Thank you for dropping everything to read my story in the midst of your own awesomeness book deals.
Andrea Mack- You always have such great insights and find those details that I miss.
Debbie Ridpath Ohi- For those critiques that made me think about everything in a new light.
Carmella Van Vleet- My taekwondo expert who inspired me to join a do-jang.
Susan Laidlaw- For keeping me true to my YA voice.
Kate Fall- For all those encouragements. How I needed those.
I truly believe that a writer's journey shouldn't be alone. It's about discovering, pushing yourself to new levels and more importantly telling a beautiful story that will touch lives. I couldn't do it without them. And I know my writing is that much richer because of them. *I heart you guys!*
Please pop back here on Monday because I'm going to celebrate with a PARTY on my blog! With book prizes, games, dancing and lots and lots of chocolate.
