I'm thrilled to share that on Friday night I accepted representation from Emmanuelle Alspaugh of Judith Ehrlich Literary Management (http://www.judithehrlichliterary.com/) for my darling Roman!!

I'm so excited. Emmanuelle has been at the top of my dream agent list ever since she read the full of my first full length paranormal romance a couple or so years ago, and made some very insightful and encouraging suggestions. I'm deep in revision mode at the moment, tightening up the manuscript after our chat on Friday but still can't quite believe it's all true!

Kim, I might do that! The quick version is this - over the last four years I've subbed four different mss to various agents. Two years ago, the agent I've now signed with showed interest in my second ms - which also happened to be the very first paranormal romance I'd written. Because of her insightful and encouraging comments I put her at the top of my wish list!
