They Like Me! They Really Like Me!!
Today’s Brew: Gypsy Cold Care Tea and OJ. I’m siiiiiiick.
Kristen Strassel is represented by Pam van Hylckama Vlieg of Larsen Pomada Literary Agency in San Fransisco.
Is that not the sexiest sentence you have ever read? It’s all true.
It all happened very fast and I have to keep reminding myself this is for real! Someone retweeted that Pam was looking for Paranormal Romance. That’s Immortal Dilemma, so I sent her a query and her requested amount of pages. That night she requested a full manuscript. I sent it off and sat on pins and needles, hoping that she would love my characters and story as much as I loved writing it.
Last night, I was working on Seasons In The Sun (the prequel to Immortal Dilemma) when the phone rang. It was Pam, offering representation! I accepted. Now we begin a whole new journey.
I haven’t had a chance to celebrate yet. When she called, I was sitting in my Muppet PJ bottoms finishing up my Walmart knockoff Kraft mac and cheese (not because I’m poor, because I’m sick and I wanted it.) I spent a good portion of the night calling friends to share the good news and wandering around the house aimlessly not exactly sure what to do with myself.
I had to let Callie, Tristan, Blade, and the gang know that they have real jobs now and people are paying attention to what they do. I’m sure they won’t improve their behavior just because you’re watching, and I’m sure you don’t want them to.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me so far on this journey! All of your feedback and comments on Immortal Dilemma and all of the blog posts here mean so much to me and Julie. Next mission: Getting Immortal Dilemma perfect for sale and publication and readying Julie so she can make this very same announcement regarding Running Home!
