Pink champagne for everyone!! I had myself a celebratory glass at lunch yesterday. Why? Well, I got my very first literary agent, and she is fabulous!! From now on in, I shall refer to her as Fab Agent.
I have been looking for the perfect fit for me and my debut novel, and this week I found it. Fab Agent and Fab assistant loved my book, read it in two sittings, loved the characters, got the characters, had great insights, great comments, brilliant suggestions on how to go about getting this book published, were unbelievably patient with me and all my questions and made me feel like I could ask anything, no matter how uninformed, or obvious, and really proved to me that they are the agency for me.
I spent a long time on my first novel and I wanted to find someone who believed in it as much as I did. And I did. And they are fabulous! And I am over the moon. And tomorrow when my book club gathers, we will crack open this bottle of champagne and I will toast to my Fab Agent and her Fab Assistant and dream of the day when my book is being read in a book club.
