Last night, my husband and I, along with our youngest, went out to Food, Glorious, Food a wonderful Tallahassee restaurant that serves some of the best food in town. Little did I know that it was really a premature celebration dinner. I got home to an email from the lovely, smart, talented, insightful (did I say smart?) Deidre Knight of the The Knight Agency. She wants to rep me! I was so excited I could have screamed, but I'm one of those strange people that when she receives really good news gets really quiet (maybe the Cuban in me thinks I'll put a jinx on the whole thing if I say it out loud) So after smiling at my computer like an idiot for about ten minutes, I ran to the living room where my husband was watching basketball. His response: "Well of course, you're very talented."
So there was no question as to who I was calling first--my lovely, smart, talented, insightful (did I say smart?) cp Mel who did all the shreiking for me. Deidre is Mel's agent and Mel is the one who introduced us. Thank you, Mel!
Going back to the premature celebration that went on yesterday, I discovered (thanks to my 13 year old daughter) a new shoe store opening in Tallahassee. It's called Polka Dot Shoes Isn't that a great name? In honor of my yet-to-be-good news I bought 2 new pairs of shoes (actually they are really revved up flipflops, but that's okay, cuz this is Florida)
I'm really looking forward to working with Deidre. She's smart, savvy, talented (did I say smart?) and thinks that my historical The War Bride has what it takes to get published.
***THIS IS MEL. I HAVE HIJACKED MARIA'S BLOG FOR A MOMENT***
I am so excited for Maria, but I have to address one tiny thing. I introduced D and Maria, but that's it. Maria's talent got her the representation offer. She has written a fantastic Regency-set historical that will catch eyes and turn heads because she's a helluva writer.
