Yup...Rachel has signed with Joanna Volpe at New Leaf Literary, and I couldn't be happier for her. Much like me, Rachel connected with Joanna not through the slush pile, but through a blog giveaway contest. (This is SUCH a reminder to have your ms READY TO GO even if you think you're just getting a critique.) Want to hear her agent story? Go over to her blog and check it out, and be sure to give her lots of love and congratulations.
