So, you might have noticed I haven’t been blogging much lately. Well, there are a couple of reasons. The first one is that I’ve been doing a lot of blogging and interviewing elsewhere lately. So, if you haven’t already checked out those posts, please do! They include:

The First Time I Didn’t Write a Me – for the Like a Virgin contest

Writing Club Wednesday: Being a Pusher – for YAMisfits

This interview by Seth Z. Herman

This interview by Kristina Perez for The Madeleine Project


The second reason is this:

It wasn’t a great time to blog about the things I want to blog about. I’m very open about my experiences in publishing, as you may have noticed, but when querying or on sub, it’s kinda best to keep those things on the DL. And since, you may or may not be aware, I was back in the query trenches, I wanted to see how things played out first, especially since actually knowing things from experience is kinda key to blogging about them, yeah?

So, I’m blogging now to say this:

I will blog about returning to the query trenches after splitting from your first agent. (And thank all the people who’ve had to deal with me over the past 6 weeks. You know who you are, and holy crap do I love you.)

I will blog about dealing with multiple offers. (Which sounds so awesome until they come from incredible agents and you just sit there in shock that you’re actually going to have to say no to all but one.)

I will blog, hopefully not alone, about all the awkward parts of publishing. (There are so many, holy crap.)

But today, I’m just blogging to say that I’ve signed with Lana Popovic of Zachary Shuster Harmsworth. Because, for the love of God, when you find an agent who says this about the book of your heart, and tells you that “you write delectably excellent douchebag,” you grab a freaking pen, ASAP.

(And props to Rachel Russell for doing this most excellent interview with her!)

So, that’s my happy new thing, and I promise, informative posts to come in August!
