This site has been such a fabulous resource on my journey. THANK YOU.

I started querying in late 2015 (way too soon!) on my MS just after I finished it. After getting some full requests and passes with really helpful feedback, I decided to stop querying in June 2016 and do some heavy revisions.

In September, I got a full request from a query sent in June 2016. Sent the full. In November, I had made another overhaul on my MS and asked to send a revised version of my full. Honestly, I thought this full request would result in another rejection or a revise and resubmit (at best!).

I made more revisions and planned on officially querying again in March with a new query and heavily revised MS, but I got an e-mail requesting a phone call. That phone call was an offer of rep! I had a really great feeling about this agent, but I had one other full still out. After the other agent with the full stepped aside, I did some research, talked to current clients at the agency, talked with the agent some more and confirmed my good feelings, and just yesterday signed with my new agent!

THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!!  hearts hearts hearts

I signed with Jessie Devine at D4EO. Originally, I had queried Pam Howell and Jessie was Pam's assistant at the time, but he has since been promoted to agent and wanted me to be his first client. I'd been following him for a while on Twitter, and after talking on the phone, it really confirmed that he is the ideal person to rep my book.
