AchievementLevelUpUnlockedHolyCrapYouGuys!!!

Three and a half years ago, I started this blog just so I could type this sentence:

I HAVE AN AGENT.



I am now represented by Tricia Lawrence of Erin Murphy Literary Agency. She's a new agent with a great agency, and she is very excited about Air Pirates. I can't wait to start working on this thing again.

I'm aware, of course, that this doesn't change the game. I've beaten a boss, but there are more levels to come, and the princess is in another castle. But a new level comes with new abilities. I've added a new member to my party, with strengths to match my weaknesses, and . . . some other gaming analogy that I'll think of later.

I'll give you the story and the statistics later (of course, the statistics). If there's something specific you want to know, please ask in the comments so I can be sure to address it.

Until then: DANCE OF JOY!

Congratulations! I assume that the statistics refer to the number of copies of your book that you will sell in the coming months!

Sarah said...

Congratulations again, Adam. This is such wonderful news! Of course, you're right, there are many more levels after getting agented, but that doesn't steal the awesome from this achievement.

Adam Heine said...

LOL, Ellis. I wish! I'm afraid it will be mostly large numbers of rejections :-)

Awesome news. Congratulations and enjoy. I can't wait to read the stats and follow you on your road to publication.

Matthew MacNish said...

It's kind of like the companions you can get in all those Bethesda games. They carry around all the weapons and armor you can't carry.

Er, wait ...

CONGRATULATIONS, ADAM! So happy for you.

Congratulations! First blog I checked today - excellent news for first thing in the morning. Can't wait to read the story and the stats, and eventually Air Pirates itself!

Angela Brown said...

This is so ROCK STAR great!

I'm doing a happy dance for you. However, it can not be recorded. There could be loss of life or limb if I find the culprit who records my shake-jiggle-stumble dance of joy.

So happy for you!

YAY YAY YAY!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm so so so so so excited for you. See, everyone said it was just a matter of time and now your time has come!

OMG, OMG, I totally forgot about Perfect Strangers. LOL! I also love the gaming references.

How exciting! Now you'll have editorial notes and eventually go on submission. This is amazing. Now I'm doing the dance of joy!

Keriann Greaney Martin said...

Re-read my last comment and it sounds so scatterbrained, lol. I guess I couldn't form a coherent thought to fully explain the joy I feel for your success!!

(That sounds scatterbrained too ... but you get what I mean, right?!)

Deserae McGlothen said...

All I can say is "Ohmyfreakinggosh, how exciting and amazing! Congratulations! Felicitad! Ay caramba! Happy Kwanza!" and all of that jazz. I am SO thrilled to hear you've got an agent! This is honestly some of the best news I've heard all week. Seriously... Congratulations, Adam! I am so happy for you and excited for myself because that means I'm one step closer to getting to read Air Pirates. Yay me! (Hey, being selfish is not a crime, Mister.)

With my sincerest congratulations!
Deserae

Oh my gosh! I'm so happy and excited for you! And now I feel bad that I haven't been able to get out to blogs lately, because I totally missed this when it first happened! HUGE CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is so very awesome! I've been reading through all of your posts after this, and it made me giddy to hear how it all played out. I'm so excited for you!!
