My good happy news for December 2015 — I have signed with Jennie Goloboy of Red Sofa Literary. Jennie represents Tex Thompson, author of one of my favorite books of the year, Medicine for the Dead, Carrie Patel, (The Buried Life, a mystery set in a dreamlike underground city) and a slate of other fantastic authors. I am so excited for the new year and being part of the Red Sofa gang. Here’s what Jennie says about herself:
“I’m a literary agent at Red Sofa Literary, specializing in fun, optimistic science fiction and fantasy, for adults and children.
I’m also a historian specializing in early American history. My book, SUCCESS TO TRADE: CHARLESTON’S MERCHANTS AND THE EARLY AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS IN THE REVOLUTIONARY ERA is forthcoming from University of Georgia Press.”
She also writes nonfiction, as well as fiction under the name Nora Fleischer.
I am so excited as I mentioned, and I have a lot of work today. Jennie and I have been discussing plans for the new project and revisions and I have some homework — a book proposal package with marketing and publicity info. So now I have a real excuse for letting my blog languish — er, rest, but be assured, in 2016 there will be plenty of news to post about.
Yay! Snoopy happy dance!
