You may have noticed I've been pretty silent about my book these last few months. Yes, the wedding was the main cause of that, but it was also because I was in a transition period. My old agent took an extended leave of absence, so I asked to be let out of my contract. I understood that she needed the time off, but I didn't want my book or writing to sit in limbo.
I queried a small batch of my favorite agents (basically agents who repped authors that I love) and let them know the situation. After a few weeks of being back on the query train (you know, days full of nail biting, refreshing e-mails and decisions), I'm happy to announce that CANARY and my new book CIRCLES WITHIN CIRCLES is now represented by John Rudolph at Dystel and Goderich.
Uhm...yeah...cue excited screaming!
I'm so excited to work with John and the agency! They represent some amazing authors such as:
Oh, and another author you might know by the name of....
Seriously, I'm honored to be a part of an agency that represents such great writers.
To celebrate, I'm giving away a copy of Nova Ren Suma's Imaginary Girls. If you haven't read it, you must. It's one of the best books I've read all year and I can't wait to get it into the hands of one of my readers.
