Mission Accomplished: Agent Acquired

So this happened today.

Twitter announcementI’m happy to officially announce that I’m now represented by Sarah Younger of the Nancy Yost Literary Agency. (It’s been on Twitter, so it must be for real, right? Still pinching myself.)

The only thing better is being able to share the news with all my writer friends, especially the Dreamweavers.

Sarah is everything I ever wanted in an agent. I am so happy, proud, and humbled that she loves my writing enough to take me on. We are going to make a great team.

Yay, Jessica! Awesome news! Love the gifs. Is that what they’re called? lol.
I remember that feeling all too well last year when I signed with my agent. I even had my husband take a pic of me holding my contract before I mailed off the signed one. 🙂
Congrats! Keep us posted…::wink, wink::
