agent news

Wanted to pop in on this chilly February morning (and when is it not, up here? Right.) and give a shout out to my new agent, Colleen Lindsay, and agency, FinePrint Literary Management. I couldn’t be more thrilled! I’m really looking forward to the partnership. Publishing, and its related endeavors, can be strange ones in terms of speed. Sometimes its glacial, and sometimes you feel like you’ve entered into some kind of particle accelerator. In that way, I do think it mimics the process of writing itself-but for both, if you are persistent and patient (not always an easy combination!), inspired choices will seem to come out of nowhere.
