Literary Representation

It’s taken me two days to reach a state of zen that will allow me to write publicly about this. The urge to go all CAPS and scream about it is still really, really strong, but … no. Maybe. We’ll see if I can make it through the announcement without getting all gushy and loud. Here we go …

As of Wednesday evening, I am now being represented by Edward Necarsulmer of McIntosh and Otis, Inc. Literary Agency.This all goes back to hints and finally open talk about a "super secret project" and I wrote in December 2008. It was because of that project that I was in contact with Edward at all.

Side Note: If you haven’t read Carrie’s books, you really must do that. You won’t be alone. You see, a couple of weeks ago, her latest book, Captivate was released in hardcover and debuted at #7 on the New York Times bestseller list for hardcover children’s books. It’s release coincided with the paperback release of her Need, which debuted at #10 on the paperback bestseller list.

I don’t know what else to say. I mean, other than the fact I am absolutely thrilled with this development. Beyond words. Not only has Carrie raved about Edward since I first met her, but he was everything she’d said he was when we spoke. And … and … McIntosh and Otis was founded by Elizabeth Otis. Elizabeth Otis, agent of John freakin’ Steinbeck. (deep breaths)

Well, more and more of this story will come out as things move along. For now, though, I think this is all I’ll say.
