Some of my most read posts on this blog are the series of posts I wrote based on a workshop I gave last June on Deep POV at the In Your Write Mind workshop, which is held at Seton Hill University every year and sponsored by the alumni of the Writing Popular Fiction graduate program.
What I didn’t blog about was that I met an agent there. We invite agents every year, and there are pitch sessions and talks and all of that. So last year, I pitched to Jennifer Udden of the Donald Maass Literary Agency and she asked for two partials, and I sent them off in July.
Time passed. Some more time passed.
Last Monday, Jen contacted me for the fulls. And from then on, it’s been a bit of a whirlwind culminating with her offering representation today and me accepting. The actual paperwork hits the mailbox tomorrow.
I’m excited and astounded and a bit dazed. I’m very glad I got to meet her in person for a couple of days, because that made the decision easy, since we clicked so well.
So that’s another step on the journey! I’ve got work ahead of me, but I’m really looking forward to what happens next!
Actually, I am totally like this:
Yeah. Dignified and all.
