Writer's World Wednesdays - Big News

I have been sitting on this news since Friday, September 27, 2014 at approximately 10:05am CST.  For me, that's pretty close to eternity.  But here it is:  I have officially signed to be represented by the amazing Karen Ball with the Steve Laube Agency

To celebrate, I'm giving away a set of books.  Just make a comment and leave me your e-mail address or find my on Facebook so I can contact you if you win. 

Here's an excerpt from Karen's own website about her credentials:

During my 30 years in publishing, I've been blessed to discover several notable authors, including Francine Rivers, Karen Kingsbury, Liz Curtis Higgs, Sharon Ewell Foster, and Ginny Yttrup, whose debut novel Publisher's Weekly called "a masterpiece!" I've also had the honor and joy of working with many other authors, including Angela Elwell Hunt, Robin Jones Gunn, Kimberley and Kayla Woodhouse, Gilbert Morris, Terri Blackstock, and Lori Copeland. It's been terrific!

My head is dizzy just looking at that list of notable authors. 

I met Karen back in February of 2011, and I was immediately drawn to her infectious laugh and generous spirit.  Ever since then, I have been working toward earning a place in her galaxy of stars.  My goal now is to learn everything I possibly can from this incredibly talented woman.  I'd love to climb inside her head and simply absorb all her knowledge, but since that's not possible, I'll settle for the hard way of seeing my writing overtaken by her red editing pen.

But there is more to Karen then just her professional credentials.  She loves nature, animals, and her husband.  She makes the best coffee and hot chocolate you've ever tasted.  She sings beautifully and plays board games fiercely. Her smile lights up a room and her presence announces, "The party is now HERE!"  And she has an acerbic wit that makes me laugh out loud.

I'm proud to be her client; I am more proud to be her friend.

Until next time,
Becca
