News!

Hiya!

Jeez, I haven't blogged in a bit. Life's been a little crazy this past week. Complications on a minor surgery I had done two months ago (potentially dangerous infection = sadface), another house-sitting job, and... the most exciting news.

WriteOn Con was incredible. Being far out of the way of most exciting big-name writing conferences, I was really happy to be able to participate in one online and for free. Especially one that was so excellent! The agents and editors involved were amazing, the panels, blogs and vlogs were very informative and often hilarious, and the live chats were really entertaining. The forums were full to bursting with amazing talent, and I totally had a blast critiquing stuff and getting feedback on my own material.

The very best part, for me? Two agents contacted me, one requesting that I submit to her, the other asking for a whole partial. And, coincidentally, another agent I queried the week before replied and also requested a partial! All three, from our correspondence, are extremely enthusiastic and passionate already.

Guys... I'm beyond stoked. I'm at the checking-my-inbox every few minutes stage.

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

  1. Congratulations, that's great news. You'll probably have an agent in no time. Good Luck. :)

  2. Great for you, however as a writer that has been published many times, and stiffed for payment by at least one magazine, keep an eye on them, they may be crumbs, there is no such thing as a stupid question, anything you don't 100% understand, ask, and ask, until you are satisfied with the answer. If you do get taken advantage of, don't wast time fuming, get on to the next project life is too short to let them suck away your energy... NEVER pay for a reading, or editing... I'm just saying... there are jerks out there.
