If you can't tell from the title of this post, I was in a bad mood earlier (sorry about that phone call, Mom). I recently lost out on two authors whose books I was INSANELY excited about. I offered representation, but they both ended up choosing someone else...I bet it was Michelle Brower.
I do believe that the agent/author relationship is a relationship, which means you have to fit well together, so if these authors thought that I wasn't quite for them, I understand and am genuinely happy that they found someone who is. I still couldn't help being bummed out for a couple days. I get so excited about projects that I feel passionate about that I tend to invest a lot of myself the second I fall in love with something.
Those are the ups and down of life, though, right?
In an effort to cheer myself up, I have made a new page featuring the pictures of all my lovely authors with links to their websites! I hope you check them all out. Also, Prospect Agency is going to be writing it's first annual client newsletter, where we highlight everyone's successes of the year in a state of the union. Gathering all the wonderful news I wanted to share about my clients tipped my scale back towards happiness. I LOVE the authors I work with - they are the best!
