I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!


You know how it is when something happens to someone you care about that is so awesome you think you might explode? Yeah, it's like that. Because you see, my writing bestie / critique partner Jessie Humphries just got an agent!

And not just any agent-- her #1 choice!

It was incredibly inspiring to watch the whole thing transpire over the past few months. Jessie put in so much hard work, listened to so many critiques, tried things to see if they'd work, changed them if they didn't, and worked until her manuscript was so shiny I could practically see it glow from here! (Which is pretty impressive, since we live in different states.)

So head on over to Jessie Humphries... B-Word to congratulate her! The girl definitely deserves it. :)

Wow, an agent AND it was her top choice? That's awesome! She must have done a great job of researching if she knew they would be a good fit--on top of all the crazy-good work she must have done to get that far. :)

I rarely stop mostly because my curiosity is just too much, but I have stopped after just two chapters, because I'm not into the book and haven't invested too much time with it. Congrats to Jessie that's awesome for her.
