Pinch Me, I’m Dreaming

Okay, so this post is long overdue…
I am super excited to announce that I am represented by Kathleen Ortiz of Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation! (squee!!  I have a T-Rex for my agent, how awesome is that?)
If you have no idea what I’m talking about:!/KOrtizzle

Kathleen has always been a 10 on my agent Query Tracker list (with a little pink heart next to it) and so I’ve been easing myself into the reality very slowly.
The short pitch for NOTE TO SELF:
When Gracie Heart finds threatening notes in her circus costume, she thinks she’s being haunted by the ghost of the magician’s last assistant. She doesn’t realize she’s the one writing the notes to warn herself: she’s next.
I have a page with an amateur book trailer on the left sidebar if you want to take a look. I’ll likely be removing it once I’m done with revisions and it goes on submission. 

**It’s already gone!**

 I am working on increasing my blog frequency to (at least) once a week. I use Twitter less frequently, but check it multiple times a day.

    Congratulations! And it sounds like placing your character in a circus is going to let you indulge your fashion side too, for the costumes. How fun! And love your Toothless costume for that (grumpy) black kitty too.
