So yeah, I have a literary agent! 😀 I’m represented by Gina Zampino of The Rights Factory! And I’m very excited about it! It was actually pretty amazing, how it all happened. It feels like it was meant to be. She was the second agent I queried and I think she replied the next day. And then she read the Sci-Fi Romance in about 2-3 days. So it happened very fast.
I’m quite surprised, lol. Not because I don’t have any faith in myself or my writing, but because…I don’t know, you never expect anything like that to happen, lol. We’ve been working on revising the manuscript for 2-3 weeks now. I think it’s coming out really well. I’m putting on some final touches and the next step is pitching to editors at publishing houses. Pretty exciting stuff.
I hope my next post is titled, “I got a book deal!” I’m gonna have a hard time walking now that I’m going to have my fingers and toes crossed all day long. Honestly though, Sci-Fi Romance novel aside, I think the best part about being represented is knowing I now have an outlet.
To know that from this point forward, every time I write a book, I have someone (who believes in me and likes my style) that I can submit it to, is the greatest feeling. They suggested I work on my YA next since that’s what’s hot right now. I planned on the YA being a big series, 8-10 books, maybe more. So that’s exciting. I have some other stuff I want to work on, on the side. I’ve got a horror novel I’ve wanted to rewrite for years. I also wrote about 70% of my urban fantasy. And I’m suuuuper excited about this high fantasy I plotted involving an epic journey and some beautiful world-building. Needless to say, I have tons of stories. You’ll never see a shortage of ideas from me. 😉
Well, back to work! Until next time! 😀
