Meanwhile, On Cloud 9…

So this thing happened over the weekend. This amazing thing that all writers dream of.

For years I’ve prayed for the right agent. God has held me back in a couple of circumstances, telling me no when I didn’t want that answer. Or keeping doors shut I thought I wanted open.

Meanwhile He kept me moving forward, writing more stories, exploring different genres, learning the craft so I can help other writers.

{I LOVE THAT PART!}Β 

And now I am beyond grateful to sign with Ali Herring of Spencerhill Associates. Ali read my contemporary romance and sent an incredibly gracious and enthusiastic offer of representation that spoke to my heart and answered my prayers.

I’m so thrilled! And grateful beyond words. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this story and my other stories, and to partner with Ali to share them with the world.

On a funny note, when I was planning the signing picture, I wanted to wear my purple, “Please Go Away, I’m Writing” t-shirt from my wonderful parents.

But when Trev took the picture, it mostly just looked like my t-shirt said “Please Go Away.” πŸ™‚ So we nixed that one. πŸ™‚

Hugs & hearts & chocolate & love & more hugs & my deepest appreciation to my family and writer friends who’ve encouraged, prayed, listened, critiqued, read, shared, hugged, and cared. God walked me through a long valley to get to this point, and I’m realizing the view is just as beautiful in the valley (right beside HIM) as it is on the mountaintop.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. (Prov. 3:5 & 6)Β
