I'm thrilled to announce that my friend and CP, Shannon Messenger, is officially an agented author!!
*throws glitter everywhere*
*throws MORE glitter*
I'll let her tell you all about it, and the ay-may-zing agent she signed with, so hop over to her blog: Ramblings of a Wannabe Scribe
But I will say this: As soon as I read her manuscript, I knew that it--and she--were destined for great things. So while I'm absolutely, "stood up and happy danced on my desk chair when I found out" excited for her--I'm not surprised at all! Mark my words, someday (soon) her book's gonna stand out with the greats in the Middle Grades sections all across the nation!
Now go--read her story and congratulate her =)
Oh, and make sure to remind her about her Deal with the Universe.
Yep, that's right. She made a deal with the universe that when she found an agent she would create her first vlog.
AND in said vlog she would "dress up and give a gooey, possibly tearful Academy Awards Style acceptance speech holding some sort of fake trophy."
AND as if that's not enough, her followers get to tell give input into what she should say and who she should thank during her speech.
I'm so happy for you!!!
