This morning I saw that Virginia announced on twitter that I am now on her client list. I can’t tell you how much it thrills me to have an agent, and for that agent to be Virginia. There’s a lot to be excited about. Virginia lives in Brooklyn which makes it all just a bit more spesh. Originally from Sydney, Virginia used to edit at Pan Macmillan. She works closely with her writers and gives spot-on editorial feedback to make the manuscript the best it can be.
Later I’ll write a post about the process of getting in front of Virginia’s sights, and how it panned out over the last few months. Next week, Virginia will be ringing and emailing her short-list of publishers that she thinks will like my stuff. Next week, I’ll be even more insomniacal than this last week I suppose. This is okay, because I don’t have my first teaching gig until the 15TH.
Wish me luck!
