On January 9th, Stephen Fraser of the Jennifer DeChiara Literary Agency offered to represent me and my middle grade time travel novel, Shakespeare on the Lam.
We had a tremendous conversation, in which he said wonderful things about the novel and asked me about my writing goals.
It all seems a little unreal.
Here I am, signing the agency agreement:
(Notice all the giants of children's literature by my side?)
I want to thank you all for your support on this journey. You have read, commented, and cheered me on. I am so grateful for your friendship.
I'll leave you with a picture of the littlest author. (My 5-year old, who lamented that no one wanted to buy his books--for $14, no less. His 8-year-old brother kindly agreed to be his agent.)
I just knew that New Year Champagne was a good omen!!
