Such a weird feeling to even be able to write this, but I will be working with Meredith Kaffel Simonoff of DeFiore & Company to bring my next novel, and future work, to life. I am thrilled! I feel incredibly lucky. She was the first agent I emailed to, the first who replied, and we clicked immediately. She understands my work in a way that can only help me become a better writer. And, as the wonderful Victory Matsui said, she is amazing, ethical, and kind.
Though I have been working without an agent up until now, Meredith can open markets and offer perspectives that would otherwise be inaccessible to me. Also, now I can concentrate on the creating my best stuff, while she can handle the business end of things. I feel as if I am entering a fresh, new phase of my writing career.
Now, of course, there’s a lot of work, and a lot of learning. And, we’ll need to get this next book super-duper ready. Even with a great agent, nothing is guaranteed. Fingers crossed. Thank you, everyone, for staying with me and my work thus far.
I promise do my best for you!
