You may have noticed that I redacted the contents of entry #28 in this month's contest. That's because the author emailed me last night and announced that she'd just signed with an agent! And asked that I please remove her entry so as not to take away a "chance" from someone else.
What class. What awesomeness. I LOVE getting emails like this!
Know what's even more fun? The Secret Agent is disappointed!
When I started this blog (over 2 years ago!), I never dreamed I'd have all these behind-the-scenes, explosively exciting experiences with authors and agents alike. It's incredibly gratifying!
So please join me in congratulating "JP" on nabbing an excellent agent.
As for me, I've moved out of my funk--the worst I've ever had, methinks--and have spent my week querying and working on a new story idea (YA urban fantasy). And sending out requested material. Which is, yanno, heady.
For a while. Until the cynicism kicks back in. (Yeah, you all know what I'm talking about!)
Anyway, I hope JP's good news has inspired you! I think the lesson here is YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN. Yes?? So keep plugging.
I'm glad to be your, erm, plug partner.
