I've Decided!!!

Okay, it's official. I have an agent!!!

I decided to go with Christine Witthohn of Book Cents Literary Agency.

Christine's enthusiasm won me over. I really want someone who is that gung-ho and excited about my work, but also really interested in sticking with me for the long run. She really wants a few good people that she can help shape their careers, rather than getting as many people as she can. And she has such a great plan for getting your work out there. Trust me, she's not going to sit on it. When she gets behind a project, she gets behind it two hundred percent. She's agressive and creative, and she works with the other agents on pitching the book in person in New York. She also works hands-on with her authors in plotting ideas and helping her authors to revise and edit their work.

I'm so excited about working with her. Now let's hope an editor is this excited about my book.

Okay, I've got work to do on book two. She wants to see that too so she can pitch both in New York. Yay, this is really happening. Finally!!!!!

Way to go, Kari! This is wonderful news! I hope you do something wonderful to celebrate!

Manic Mom said...

Yay for Kari!

So happy for you!

I wish you could all celebrate with me. Instead, I'm having a glass of wine and trying to fix my first three chapters and synopsis of book two so I can send them to her tonight. Then I have to carry the changes throughout the book and finish the last chapter. But I'm grinning the whole time.

My poor husband. I haven't seen him all week and he's only home for tonight and tomorrow then he's gone again all next week. And all I want to do is write. Okay, so I want to do something else took, but then write some more. I'm sure he'll be thrilled;))))
