I Have a Literary Agent (I Pinched Myself and I’m Not Dreaming)

So this happened.

I signed a contract with a literary agent. Not just “a” literary agent, but the exact literary agent I was hoping for. As of this week, I am officially represented by Karen Neumair at Credo Communications. And according to my contract, I am hereinafter called the AUTHOR. Oh boy. That word connected to my name is just about more than my heart can take. It’s a big deal. It’s a jump into my hubby’s arms and go out for steak at Johnnie’s kind of big deal.

Thank you Jesus, for signed literary agreements (and for husbands and steak too.)

Here’s a link to my AUTHOR (I like that word so much) profile at Credo.

  1. How wonderful….it will be exciting to watch you grow in this thing called literary!!! Prayers for your continued growth as you enter this stage!

    1. Thank you! The agent contract is a big step, but I still need a publishing contract. Karen will be working on reaching out to her publishing contacts to get a publishing contract, but it could still take a little while. I’ve learned that the writing business is anything but fast. 🙂 I just saw your post on Facebook about your scans. I pray they come back clear. I’m sure it’s a little stressful.

    1. Thank you Judi! This is a was a big hurdle on my way to making my book a reality 🙂 Now I can move on to the next step in the process.

  2. Thank you Christa. The thought of the next step is a bit overwhelming, but I’m just going to focus on this and be happy for a few days 🙂
