Good news. Our lives are crazy busy right now. Science fair, soccer start up (DH is coaching), getting a freebie piano, DH's fish about to spawn (maybe), DIY, garden, dog (must call the vet about heartworm tablets), school stuff, oh, and yeah, writing :)
I've got some great news. After a bit of a whirlwind I signed with an agent--Jill Marsal, of the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.This is despite the fact I can't get Jill's last name right. Shoot me now.
So now I have two Jills in my life and hope their emails don't get mixed up, because as much as I love my sister-in-law I don't think she can get me a book deal, and I'm pretty sure my agent isn't going to want to know the inner working of my kids' misadventures in school, or how the parents-in-law are behaving (although the latter is usually pretty wild and exciting).
I told my son what was going on.
He said, "So, do you have to pay this person?"
"An agent only earns money if I earn money. She gets a percentage of my royalties," I explained.
"Ha! So she's got a crap job too."
Thanks buddy. I'll remind you of that one day. :)
