Seriously, I’ve been dying to write this post.
Because . . . I now have an agent!!!
For those of you who don’t know, I started querying back in mid-April (kind of like sending around a resume for a job). My query letter did really well, and I had several agents ask to see the full manuscript. Which was pretty awesome, and made me feel like I was doing something right.
Then I had a few offers of representation, which meant I had a very hard choice to make. And I’m so bad when it comes to choices. I talked with several agents on the phone, and they were all just so amazing. But talking with Nicole was like magic. Her enthusiasm for my manuscript, her ideas for revision, and her personality just clicked.
So in the end, I signed on with Nicole Resciniti at the Seymour Agency. She’s a self-confessed science geek, and I write science fiction. Not only does it sound like a match made in heaven, but I know she’s going to make sure I get my facts straight.
Nicole’s record speaks for itself. She’s a newer agent, but it’s like she on fire when it comes to book sales. To be honest, I think I’m still in shock to have such a fabulous agent. (There may or may not have been a lot of jumping up and down, squealing. I’ll admit to nothing at this moment.)
So there you have it! I’ll be posting about my querying process, and spend the next month talking about queries in general. So stay tuned, and let me know if you have any questions.
