Literary Agent Representation

I am very happy to announce that I now have an agent and am being represented by the Hummingbird Literary Agency. It happened at the summer SCBWI conference in Los Angeles. Founder and agent, Mira Reisberg, and I hit it off. We talked, emailed back and forth, she asked to see some of my work, and a few weeks later, we signed a contract. I’m looking forward to a long working relationship with Ms. Reisberg who has worked as an illustrator, writer, editor, art director and designer. A woman of many talents!
Here’s an interesting guest post on the Cynsations blog: “Ammi-Joan Paquette on An Abundance of Book Releases: How Much Is Too Much?” How does one handle having too many books released around the same time? (We should all have this problem, right?) Ms. Paquette handles this in a very professional manner. See for yourself.
