I’ve been so busy revising my latest novel that I neglected to share my big news: I have a new agent! On Sept. 11, 2015, after a long search, I signed with the fabulous Caitlin Blasdell of Liza Dawson Associates, and I couldn’t be happier.
Item #1 on my wish-list was to find an editorial agent who would help me bring my work to its highest potential. Now that I’ve gone through several rounds of revision with Caitlin, I can honestly say that I’ve hit the jackpot. She saw through to the core of my story, and through editorial letters, phone conversations, and numerous comments on the manuscript itself, coaxed me to bring the underlying themes and emotions to the surface. The resulting novel is one I can truly be proud of, one that I hope will find its way into readers’ hearts.
For a while, I feared that my writing career had stalled out. But now, thanks to Caitlin, who was willing to take a chance on me – okay, and to my own perseverance and determination – my writing life is taking wing again.
