I have an agent

The end of 2016 has been so horrible for me that I’ve been sitting on this bit of good news for a while. At long last, here it is.

My querying process for my Birdverse novel THE UPHOLDING was surprisingly short and eventful; I sent out a dozen queries and received three offers of representation and a rewrite request from four wonderful agents in the field. I loved the conversations I had with these agents; I feel that I learned a lot about the business, and also about myself and my work. I am very grateful for the time and attention my work has received from the agents who considered it.

I had to make some difficult decisions, but I am very happy to announce that at the end of this process I have signed with Connor Goldsmith of Fuse Literary. I had many excellent conversations with Connor and am looking forward to working with him.
