It’s DVPit day two on Twitter. I’m failing.

I waited to post this until the day was already over. This is the #firststeps in my future #publishing #dreams. Over on #Twitter, it was adult #dvpit day, and this was my #twitterpitch. I didn’t expect anything from it, so I wasn’t disappointed. But It is a #milestone. This is the day I stopped being just a #writer. This is the day I become a #querying #author. Baby steps are just as import...

Gearing Up For #DVPit - Agent Tracking Template

Gearing Up For #DVPit - Agent Tracking Template

Gearing Up For #DVPit – Agent Tracking Template We’re edging up on #dvpit and I know we’re all excited about the potential of getting our work into the hands of as many potential agents as possible, but when I began querying the emails were flying out and requests were coming in and it was hard to remember who was sent what and when. Organization is key when you’re deep in the query tr...

Crunch Time: Operation #DVPit

We are now less than a week until #DVPit and I am seeeeeriously unprepared– unless this is an agent reading this, then I am so prepared !!! I’m really excited because I’m going to be going on a mini writing retreat this weekend a.k.a. house sitting for my friend’s apartment in the city. I’m getting ready for my beta readers to read more than just the first chapter (and hopefully get...

I ended up taking a short break that turned into a long hiatus (as one does) after #DVPit, for a couple of fun reasons. One of the reasons came back in April. I had some success in DVPit (a couple of likes from agents which was really cool!!) but this was the first time I’d ever done a pitch contest– or even been vulnerable and open about my work outside of my critique partners– and it wa...

“Fear is your enemy only if you allow it to be.” An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir @sabaatahir . What inspires you? What keeps you motivated to keep trying? . Whether you own a small business or you’re building your account, or in my case, writing a book, we all are inspired in some way to start but how do you keep going? . It’s been a while since I last shared my progress on my nove...

Hey friends! I hope you’re all doing well and April has been a fabulous month for you! I don’t know how it’s almost the end of the month. I feel like my calendar is telling me lies, but apparently it only tells cold hard facts. #dvpit is in a week! . I’ve been working (i.e. burrowed in the revision cave) on my manuscript for #dvpit for the past month and the progress is slow and stead...

Wow. So the dates for DVPit are April 25 (children and YA) and April 26 (adult). And I thought I’d be ready by then.

dvpit maybe fall or next year sigh

Yesterday I participated in #DVpit on twitter, and I actually got some interest? So today I synopsed, blurbed, cover lettered, and renamed the Brain Jellyfish Novel (that last one being the most difficult) and submitted it to an agent. Then, of course, I spent the evening hyperventilating. Like you do.

I have an agent!

I have an agent!

The short version: I am happy to announce I am now an agented writer! I have signed with Jennifer Azantian of Azantian Literary. She first expressed interest during this April’s #DVPit! The long version: I debated whether to just make an announcement or actually write a whole “How I Got My Agent” post, and eventually decided to do the latter. Why? Well, firstly, because I’ve always fou...
