Congrats to Jenny!

BIG news!!!! One of my good online writing buddies has signed with a fabulous agent. Jenny Martin has signed with the amazing Mary Kole from the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. They're going to make such a good team!

It's so exciting - Jenny's such a fun and fabulous person. You've got to read her post on her signing journey. And the one where she sings Eye of the Agent. And the one on Twitter Spam I Am. And maybe the one ... Okay you get the idea. She's hilarious and creative and fun. No wonder she's signed!

Congratulations to Jenny! If you haven't met her yet pop on over & say hi!

    I just watched 'The Young Victoria,' so your book on that era is especially intersting to me. But how many different viewpoints can one absorb? So much historical fiction in your mailbox! Though who am I to judge? Mine is pretty much on a theme as well this week.
