Earlier this month, I posted about finishing HAUNTED SOULS, my fourth manuscript--a contemporary romance featuring a military hero, intertwined with a suspenseful haunting. Now, I pushed myself hard to finish this one, because in December, this manuscript won an exclusive submission to a literary agency via a First Page Contest. While it was fine to enter the contest with an incomplete manuscript, I knew if the agency was interested, there was not much they could do with a partial manuscript. So, I forced myself to wait on submission until it was done.
And then...I got "The Call"! While I love the small press I've been published with in the past, having an agent will open new doors to publication in the future, and it's the right step in my career. Not to mention a dream come true! I've worked with a number of authors my new agent represents in the past, and I'm thrilled to be part of the team.
