This is the biggest, most exciting announcement to grace the pages of this blog.
Are you ready?
Elissa Cruz, first place winner in our March, 2009 Secret Agent contest, has signed with Secret Agent Josh Getzler!
That's right! It's our very first AGENT SIGNING as a result of winning a Secret Agent Contest.
In Elissa's own words:
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for all the time and energy you put into your Secret Agent contests. I entered and won first place in March 2009, when the fabulous Josh Getzler was the Secret Agent. As my prize, I whisked my full manuscript off to him, and I'm thrilled to announce that he has offered representation! I'm certain that without this contest I would still be searching for my dream agent. But, thanks to you, I've found him.
And when my book sells, you and all your wonderful critters have earned a prominent place in the acknowledgments. THANK YOU!
Elissa also mentioned that she'd love for you to pop over to her BLOG with your questions and comments.
Needless to say, I am BEYOND THRILLED. Elissa's the first to prove that ours is truly the Premium Slush Pile. Not only am I delighted for Elissa, but also I'm SO PROUD of this fantastic group of aspiring authors. Let this be a fireworks-embellished reminder to each of you that YOU COULD BE NEXT.
Congratulations to Elissa and Josh. May this be the start of a fabulous working relationship and the kick-off to a long and successful writing career!
