Elected

Fantastic News! I Got Signed by a Literary Agent, Sara D’Emic of Talcott Notch!

I am so excited to say that I was signed by a literary agent, Sara D’Emic of Talcott Notch Literary Agency!  The process has been great so far.  I sent her agency a query in late August.  She got back to me asking to see the first fifty pages of ELECTED.  Then she asked for the whole manuscript, and a few days later, she sent me an email saying she’d like to work with me.  We talked on the phone about specifics, and the contract is being signed by both parties.

My lovely husband even framed and matted the email correspondence, which is now hanging in our office.

Someone told me they heard that finding a lit agent is like finding a husband.  I truly think it is….the process of writing the book, synopsis, query letters, going to conferences, talking to prospective agents, etc. took a long time.  Lots of ups and downs.  I know this is just one step in the long road ahead to publishing, but it’s a major step, and it feels great!
