Tierney Fowler (thatgirlyoulove on QT) has signed with agent Jennifer Mishler of Literary Counsel.
In later versions, I had some writer friends read over the first few chapters before I started querying, but for the most part, I'm anal enough about editing that I handled it on my own.
Dear Ms. Mishler,
I graduated with a degree in Creative Writing from George Mason University, and had multiple creative non-fiction pieces published in the campus magazine, newspaper, and website. In addition to being an aspiring actress, I currently write and curate a style blog, and recently shot a reality television pilot about shopping.
Lifestyles of the Rich and Infamous is a 73,000 word young adult novel which will appeal to fans of Cecily Von Ziegesar’s Gossip Girl series, Zoey Dean’s The A-List series, and Rachel Cohn’s Gingerbread.
Nicole “Nyx” Carrington loves two things in life: red lipstick and AJ Abbott—the hottest brooding bassist at Robinson High. Luckily for her, AJ’s back on the market, and his band is looking for a new singer. When Nyx finds herself both in the band and in his arms, she figures life can’t get any more perfect.
When a chance encounter with a record executive sends their band on a whirlwind trip to Manhattan, Nyx’s perfect life suddenly gets complicated. See, her absentee father turns out to be a pretty nice guy (for a billionaire), and her half-brother is Jeremy is daily tabloid fodder. Then there's Tristan Halifax, a totally gorgeous, totally arrogant model, who won't take no for an answer.
Nyx is quickly propelled into the limelight with her rags-to-riches story and drama filled love triangle. Sure, being famous has its perks, but juggling high school, friendships, and boyfriends is a lot harder when America is stalking her every move.
The first three chapters are attached. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
