I am THRILLED to announce that I am the newest client of literary agent Michelle Andelman of Regal Literary!
AAAAAAAAHHHH! (Everybody scream and jump up and down!)
I have been rather quiet about my query process and the status of my writing projects in general. I’m kind of shy that way. I don’t like to be too open when it feels like the odds are stacked so high against me. (I hate failure! Rejection is torture! I’d rather keep it private.) And though this doesn’t mean my book will for sure get published, I feel like I’ve taken one big step toward my dream.
I’m so excited to move forward with Michelle. I truly feel I couldn’t have asked for a better match; someone who gets my style and voice and intuitively knows where it needs to go. And Regal Literary as a whole seems like an amazing team.
But I also know that none of this would have happened without dear friends who read my rough draft and offered savvy suggestions and heaps of moral support. Kate, Jen, Jenilyn, Krista, and Ali, thank you so much for all your help. You all rock and I love you.
Okay, this is starting to sound like the acknowledgments page at the back of a book. Yeah, we’re not there yet. Michelle and I will be doing some revisions together over the next few weeks before we go on submission.
Cheers all around!
If anyone wants to know more about this process, I’m happy to share. I just never know how much detail people want. So if you’re curious, ask away.
