I Am So Excited

Way back in September I wrote an entry on my blog about the future of publishing. I wrote then that one of the most important things agents would be asking is if you have self published a book. What was the response to your book? What is your following on your networking sites?
Well, I guess the proof is in the pudding. I recently received an email from an agent. She said she purchased Immortal on Amazon for her Kindle and loved it. She was also curious to know if I had representation.
My first response, “This is a joke.” Surely someone hijacked the agents account and was spamming me hoping to get personal information. After digging around and fact check (it is nice to have a computer genius for a friend) I discovered it was real. It took me several hours for it to sink in and another hour to reply to the email.
After exchanging several emails with the agent we set up a time to speak. Around one o’clock today we spoke. She gave me a few suggestions on improvements and some advice and offered representation. So as of one thirty today I am now an agented author with Kimberly Whalen the Vice President at Trident Media Group LLC. I feel incredibly lucky. I realize this doesn’t happen every day.
I want to also thank everyone who has purchased Immortal, written a review, or just placed it on their TBR list. If it wasn’t for all of you this may not have happened. So, thank you all.
