Keep Moving Forward

Approximately 200 rejection letters sent between 2008 and 2009, when most rejections still came via snail mail. That's a lot of stamps and some serious carpal tunnel. 


My lovely agent, Marietta Zacker of Nancy Gallt, who I signed with April 2009.

 My first book contract for Nightshade City, September 2009


 
 Spring: 2010 My first real live editor edited manuscript. This was scary!



 Fall 2010: The first time I spotted (well, more like stalked) my book in a bookstore. Wow! 


Fall 2011: My 2nd Book 

Books published to date. 

KEEP MOVING FORWARD.
