I was going to write this epic, long post with all the wild details of how I came to sign with my agent Christina Hogrebe at the Jane Rotrosen Agency. I was going to tell you about querying Carlie Webber and later meeting her at the Writers’ League of Texas conference (where I managed to drop the f bomb while talking to her…woops) and I was going to tell you about how when Christina called me to offer representation Carly Rae Jepsen was on the radio and I was in the middle of sending a tweet about how I felt this song seemed to be foreshadowing a good day. (I only later made the Carly/Carlie connection.)
I was going to write about how surreal it is to be with an agency that also reps Lurlene McDaniel, whose books I read like it was my job in sixth grade. I was going to rave about how awesome I think this new partnership is, and how rockin’ team Rotrosen has been in just the few days I’ve been officially their client.
I was going to talk about how it took a LONG time to get here and how every baby step and every giant leap and every down-in-the-dumps-wtf-am-i-doing-day was worth it.
But mostly I just want to be all like OMG I HAVE AN AGENT! AND IT’S CHRISTINA HOGREBE! So that’s where I’m at right now.
