This year I began a new career. It was super scary, and the kind of career where you kind of build up and hope to someday make money. I’m one of the lucky people who have a partner who can support them while they try something new.
Being a literary agent has been the best job I’ve ever had in my life. (I’ve also been a newspaper advertising sales manager, Scandinavian boy band manager, Blogger for Yahoo!.) Nothing I’ve done previously has ever allowed me to do so many things that I love and be so creative.
I’ve been an agent since April.
I have fifteen wonderful clients who have taken a chance on a newbie agent. I love you guys.
For those fifteen clients I’ve sold 21 books. TWENTY-ONE! I am in awe of the awesomeness of the drafts they turn in. And I’ll be keeping you all up to date about when these books are coming out, and covers, and all the other stuff.
The first book I sold was Angel Academy: Prophecy Girl by Cecily White to EntangledTeen. That book comes out April 2 of 2013! My first release.
I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings. Thank you all for everything!
