Well, I just got off the phone with Matt Bialer a while ago. And I'm now the newest client at Sanford J. Greenburger Associates, Inc! How cool is that!?!
We talked for over an hour, discussing the fantasy genre, as well as potential editors and publishers that would be a good fit for The Eye of the Serpent. Even better, Matt feels comfortable shopping the manuscript in its current form, so that should speed up the process a little.
As crazy as it sounds, it hasn't dawned upon me yet that I now have literary agent. . . I've been trying to do just that for the last 7 years, so I guess that explains my having a hard time believing that I was finally able to succeed.
To all you aspiring writers out there, hang in there and don't give up!:-) Good things can happen!
