It has been driving me to near insanity that I have not been able to share my HUGE news with y’all but I can now officially spread the word. I have signed with literary agent, Lauren Ruth from BookEnds!! Lauren Ruth started her publishing career as an intern at Simon & Schuster's Touchstone/Fireside imprint while earning her B.A. in English language and literature from Pace University. Shortly thereafter, she completed her second internship at BookEnds, where she fell in love with the literary agency side of the publishing industry. In February 2011, she joined BookEnds as a full-time literary assistant. She will soon have her master's degree in book publishing. In fiction, Lauren is looking for literary fiction, romance, women's fiction, chick lit, young adult, middle grade, mystery, historical fiction, and steampunk. On the nonfiction side, she's looking for memoir, parenting and family, relationships, food and lifestyle, business, popular science, popular culture, and popular psychology. She blogs at SlushPileTales! Lots of great information for writers looking for representation! To say I am thrilled is a huge understatement!! Big plans and exciting times are ahead of me! And no...I cannot tell you about those plans just yet! Hugs & Kisses!
