I'm afraid I've been neglecting you.
I've been so focused on editing Alyssa's Playlist and processing some very exciting news, that I haven't had much time to update my website. Now that everything has been finalized and official, I can announce...
I am now, officially, represented by Tina Schwartz and The Purcell Agency.
I met Tina at the Writing Workshop of Chicago, and I am so excited to take these next steps with her. If I'm completely honest, I'm still in this whirlwind of emotions, I'm still struggling to process what this really means. All good things, though!
At this point, my primary goal is to revise some aspects of Cody Matthis that need fixed up to keep it YA-oriented. I'm hoping to get them done quickly, but it's always so hard to switch gears between projects. Alyssa is at a good pausing point. So I'm going to take this weekend to really work hard on Cody and see what I can make of it. I hope to make the biggest revisions before I go back to work, because, alas, summer is almost over. And as we know, the school year offers very little time to do major editing.
Overall though, I'd say this was a very successful, productive summer!
