more good things...


as if this writing stuff hasn't been going hog-wild-awesome enough lately, i have more good things to share...

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 :)

  2. And the ferret is my favorite character in a cast of completely amazing characters. Who knew? Your enthusiasm is infectious, Jessica. Keep it coming. :)

  4. Yay! Skipping and smiling are two of my favoirite things!
    Love to hear good news.
    P.S.
    Have you heard of/read "The Typewriter Girl" by Allison Atlee? Historical romance I'm reading, though not my usual genre, ended up loving the M.C. She's got moxie!

    2. Fffty pages to the end and I grew so impatient with the heroine--moxie or no. (Why couldn't she marry him? I forget. Hell--I woulda done it in Chapter 3.) I skipped to the last page, read the ending and shut out the light.
      With apologies to the author. Maybe that's why I don't read romances...
      Had to update you and warn: Never suggest a book 'till you're done reading it!

  6. I had to write again. How's this for irony: when I submitted my previous comment, the CAPTCHA began with "YA."
