I met Awesome Agent Holly Root last week. I was nervous, kind of, but it was more of an excited nervous. I know people who've been with their agent for years and have never laid eyes on them, so CJ Redwine and I lucked out when Awesome Agent Holly told us she was coming to Nashville for the book signing of her client Lisa Patton, author of Whistlin' Dixie In a Nor'easter. CJ and I were invited to meet Holly for coffee, and of course we did.
This should serve as a public notice that Awesome Agent Holly's name has been changed to: Generalissima Root, Her Awesomeness.
She's previously made known her intent to rule the world. My humble opinion is that when the takeover starts?
*looks around and then whispers*
You want to be on her side.
Scary smart, wickedly astute and pure genius, Generalissima Root is. If you don't believe me, read this. Oh yeah. She quotes my manuscript.
I feel exceedingly blessed to be in such brilliant, excellent, splendiferous hands. (Can hands be splendiferous?) An additional boon to meeting Her Awesomeness was the 45 minutes she spent with me brainstorming the project I'm working on now.
You can't beat that with a stick, yo.
And, per the cartoon above, if you are a writer and you aren't visiting Inky Girl every day, what is your deal, pickle? I will be doing NaNoWriMo again this year, but with a goal.
And an outline.
More about that later ....
