A.W.'s Agent Success!

I get e-mails semi-frequently from writers who have just landed an agent and want to thank me for the info I provide on my blog. I LOVE these e-mails because they remind me I'm helping people, often people I don't even know, and I get to celebrate their success with them. I received one such e-mail earlier this week from A.W. Parson's at Words of a Feather and I wanted to send you over to read her agent story. It's in two parts and is just overall fun and inspiring, a great reminder that you could very well end up with the one agent on your list you thought was "un-gettable."

Manuscript Meets Agent: A Love Story - Part ONE, and Part TWO.

Good luck to everyone out there in the query trenches! And if you're entering THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE chains, my winner, Paula McLaughlin, already has her post up. Enter here!
