More info to come later but…on July 7th, 2017, I signed with Jenny Bent of The Bent Agency!! It’s been a long, long search, and at some points I definitely doubted whether I’d get here, but–here I am! Honestly, it’s all still sinking in. I haven’t fully come to terms with it yet, and I kind of feel like a dog that caught its own tail after spending its entire life chasing it.
January 2013–finished the first draft of Book Two.
January 2013-October 2016–tirelessly revised, queried, and obsessed over Book Two. (In between query batches and waiting for full requests to be read, wrote books Three and Four, neither of which I intended to query.)
October 2016–Started Book Five
November 2016–Finished Book Five
December 2016-February 2017–Tirelessly revised Book Five
February 2017–Sent first batch of queries for Book Five
March 2017–Got rejections, considered giving up
April 2017–Got back in the saddle, reworked query, entered contests to help revise
April-May 2017–More revisions, more queries sent. #DVPit requests forced me to test out the new query.
May 2017–Oh my god four full requests
June 2017–Oh my god offer
July 2017 (Present)–Oh my god eleven full requests and three offers
