On Foreword and moving forward


In case you missed the news I have left Larsen Pomada and am starting my own literary agency with the help of a few awesome agents and partners.

I’ve known about this for a while, but I had to keep it secret from you. Keeping secrets is hard on the soul. I’m forever grateful to Michael Larsen and Elizabeth Pomada for starting me on my career and for blessing this new career choice. They are amazing people.

Now that the cat is out of the bag a few housekeeping things:

Your queries, partials, fulls are all safe and have been transfered over to Foreword. But I won’t be reading anything this week. My job was to help my husband build the website and add all the content and start all the social media. This week I’m going to bask in the glory of my news and take a nap or two. Next week I’m back at work for you.

My intern John Hansen has been named my assistant. Congrats to John.

This is a scary, wonderful, amazing thing that is happening and if you want to live in wonder with me you can find Foreword at these places: website, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest.

Thank you all for the congrats.

    Wow, amazing news! The web site is awesome as well. Thanks for posting this info, it’s on querytracker as well so hopefully you won’t be inundated with e-mails from people asking about their submissions. Wishing you the very best!

    This is wonderful! When you announced earlier that you’d have some big news on the 5th I was wondering if this is what you meant. I’m so happy it all came together with some incredibly talented people!

    Congratulations, Pam. I have followed you on Twitter through your own tweets and on #askagent, and always found your comments helpful and insightful. Good luck to you and the agency!

    Congratulations! That is such an exciting step forward–I’ve been not-creepily-it’s-completely-professional-I’m-an-unpublished-author-and-that’s-what-we-do-following you since you popped up as a new agent, and every one of your professional triumphs has been like a little newbie beacon of hope for me and many others. I can’t wait to see what you do next!

    Again: totally professional interest.

    Congrats! Break legs!

    Well, I hope the Foreword Agency rises into the sky like the Space Shuttle used to; and although as per one of my previous posts, I’m rather agnostic about the whole e-query thing, as soon as you’re settled into your new digs, I’ll break down and actually send one by way of officially saying hi. (No obligations to respond, of course) I’m kind of burned out on the New York City power-lunch Olympus thing and have been on the lookout for West Coast agency that isn’t corrupted by the LA smogbelt; if we end up working together, fine, if not, I’ll still enjoy dropping an occasion comment on your blog-now go have a quad-shot iced mocha at Starbucks on me….

    Congratulations! That’s really exciting (and kind of scary I bet). Good luck.

    Congrats, Pam!
    Best of Success to you and your staff. Looking forward to meeting you in person next month at the Missouri Writers’ Guild conference.

    Oh my gosh I have clearly been living under a rock this past month. Congratulations! I had not the first clue. I wish you the very BEST of success with your agency.

    You’d think with all the internet stalking of you that I do, I’d have NOTICED this post and the Big News. I am an abysmal stalker. I apologize. How did I miss this? It’s, like, 6 week old news.

    So, belatedly – YAY! *throws confetti* I suppose this is the news I wrote you about sending you my awesome-super-novel all about ME to promote. hahaha Who wouldn’t want to read about ME, I ask. I am that amazing.
