CONGRATULATIONS RACHEL!

I am absolutely thrilled to share this exciting news with you guys. My awesome, amazing, wonderful, and every other positive adjective friend Rachel Searles has snagged herself an absolutely outstanding agent!

YAY RACHEL!

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.
