A literary agent has offered to represent my first novel, WITCH WAY. This is significant, because without an agent, my novel will remain unread and unloved, languishing forever in a dusty Dropbox folder.
In a stunning display of maturity, I did not respond to the offer with "YES OKAY REPRESENT ME PLEASE. TAKE MY NOVEL. TAKE IT! TAKE MY NOVEL AND ALSO HERE IS MY FIRSTBORN! I DO NOT HAVE A FIRSTBORN BUT I WILL MAKE ONE SPECIALLY FOR YOU!"
Though I was tempted.
The thing is, my manuscript is sitting with two other literary agents. Out of professional courtesy I owe them a week to make their decisions. One or both of them might choose to offer me representation, too. If they do, then I get to pick whichever one suits me best.
If they decline, that's okay, too, because I'll still have a literary agent, who I quite enjoyed talking with.
Updates to follow next week, after I know which one I'm going with.
