I’m happy to announce that I’m now represented by agent Ann Collette at Rees Literary Agency.
One of my friends asked me how long it took from query to contract; it took about five months. That’s not including the time to write the novel, revise the novel, write the query, revise the query, and research agents. I started writing this particular project in February of 2014. In other words, if you’re going through the process right now and starting to feel a bit hopeless–as I did–try to remember that it takes a long time, this writing business thing.
For those curious about the novel itself, it’s called The Last Siren and it’s based on my short story “The Siren,” which appeared in Strange Horizons in 2013.
