First of all, thank you for keeping me company these past few months. Thank you for your comments and encouragement. This blog wouldn't be what it is today without you.
I wanted to take this time to share some news with you. As you know, I've committed myself to taking my writing seriously at the beginning of this year. I've said as much in this section of Reads, Reviews, Recommends and on other sections of this website that I started last year.
As with many aspiring writers out there, I was excited with the prospect of a career in writing. I wanted nothing more than to share my stories with the world. But, even with all the excitement, I still had my doubts. There are so many horror stories out there of writers getting scammed or agents that aren't really agents. I can go on and on, and if you're an aspiring writer, I'm sure you've either heard or read of something that could make you want to give up writing for a more reliable job.
Despite my doubts, I kept on writing, receiving rejection after rejection. I reached a point where the rejections became a process of elimination. I realized that I wanted to find the right home for my novels. Months and months passed, until one day, I received an email that changed my life. Actually, they were a series of emails and a phone call.
Dearest reader, I want to share the news that I have found a home for my novels at McIntosh & Otis. I have an agent. And we're all working hard to make Lunar Heat the best that it can be. The dream is coming true. The goal of getting an agent before the end of the year as been achieved.
To believe is such a powerful thing. Sometimes, it felt like nothing was happening, but really, the belief of getting published got me through. The idea that I can do this. That I will make it. And that people share the same belief in the work that I do. For those at the end of their rope, don't let go. Keep believing. Can you really see yourself doing something else? I sure couldn't.
I just wanted to share my happiness with you, dearest reader.
