first off, my amazing, wonderful, lovely agent, jamie bodnar drowley, is with a new and shiny agency. so i am now represented by inklings literary agency. i am beyond excited to be a part of this journey and was overwhelmed with happiness when she asked me if i'd come along for the ride - i didn't even have to think about it! YES!!! was on the tip of my tongue from the get go.
my other piece of good news is that jamie has signed on to represent THE OFFERING - a project i am so in love with and giddy over i can't begin to explain it. if i could sum up the book in photos, it would be this:
the offering pin board
and, as a song, this:
THE OFFERING is YA dystopian (with elements of light fantasy) about a girl, her ferret, a boy, a divided people oppressed by their government, a secret society, and takes place in a world that is made up of islands. well, that's the choppy gist of it anyway.
so...good stuff. i'm feeling pretty lucky and can't say i'm not smiling and skipping a lot these days :)
