Agent Sisters

Once upon a time, I sent Amy Sonnichsen an e-mail. We were unagented, and since we'd gotten requests from Kate Schafer Testerman in the past, I allowed myself to imagine that she offered to both of us. Our writing styles were similar, I thought; it didn't seem too far outside the realm of possibilities. So we'd become agent sisters, and Kate would sell both our books, and we'd go on book tours together and sit side-by-side at those little folding tables and foist each other's books on unsuspecting bystanders.

I'm absolutely THRILLED to report we're a third of the way there.

So hop over to Amy's post and congratulate her on signing with the indomitable Kate. I don't know if we'll ever go on book tours together or foist each other's books on unsuspecting bystanders, but hey, it's fun to dream. And as they say on South Pacific, "You've got to have a dream. If you don't have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true?"

(For the record, I loathe that movie and especially that song, but it does make a good point:) )

Thanks, Stephsco!

I'm jealous, Vijaya! I'd love to meet Amy and her family. Someday, someday...

I know, right, Ben?! I'm pumped! (Is it just me, or is pumped a nineties word?)

You heard it here first, Kimberly! :)

Oh, I'm just seeing this, Krista! Thank you so much!! I still can't believe the first part of the dream came true. This gives hope to the other bits of it, too! <3 When you get your contract I'm doing another interpretive dance celebration ... whether you like it or not. ;)

I'm so happy for Amy! You guys are all awesome. (And leaving me in your sparkly, multi-colored dust. I'll catch up soon, I promise!)

Thanks, Amy! Now I really hope I land a book deal someday:)

I'm sure you will, Kayeleen. And don't feel too bad--it's not like you've been doing nothing for the last little while:) Wishing you lots of writing time in the new year!

Merry Christmas to you, too, Lexa!
