I'm bursting with joy for my fantastic writing buddy and amazing crit partner, JODI MEADOWS, who has just signed with the fabulous LAUREN MACLEOD.
It's a perfect pairing; it really is! I couldn't be happier. Seriously.
You know how, many times, when one of your writing colleagues finally signs with an agent, you're truly pleased for her and wish her the best, but somewhere deep inside a tiny voice whines, "It's always someone else instead of me"? (Yeah, that. Admit it.) Well, I don't feel that way (this time). Jodi is an amazing, talented, tenacious writer who works hard and knows her craft--and the business--well. She is a dream client and now she's landed a dream agent.
And she's been invaluable in my own journey as a writer. God often brings a person into our lives exactly when He knows we need it. Jodi is one of Those People in my life. She's a butt-kicking critter, a conscience-poking sidekick, a wealth of dry wit, and a source of affirmation and encouragement without which I don't know where I'd be.
So. It's an honor to share this news with you. I know that those of you who know her, have heard of her, or have benefited from her insightful comments during our Query Contest last year will rejoice with her.
Join me in congratulating both of them!
