I'm really not exaggerating! This week the most amazing thing happened: an agent offered me representation. And not just any agent. I've signed with Ginger Clark of Curtis Brown, who specialises in sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal romance.
So of course I immediately said YES!!! to her offer and I've been on cloud nine ever since.
As you can see from my profile, I've been working on a YA fantasy trilogy this year. Book one is called Lharmell, book two is The Harmings, and book three is Queen of Lharmell. I'm very excited about my work being submitted to all the fantastic publishing houses whose books I avidly read. I really hope the trilogy sells--I've got everything crossed!!
I'm not the only Melbourne-based YA blogger to sign with Ginger Clark in the last weeks. Steph Bowe of Hey! Teenager of the Year has just signed with her too!
I don't think I would have stayed sane throughout this whole process without the support and enthusiasm of Amanda Ashby (another fabulous Aussie), the witty and talented author of, among others, The Zombie Queen of Newbury High. Amanda has been generous with not only her advice, but with her time as well, and unflagging positivity. Thanks so much, Amanda!
