So, along with my (still not quite believable) win at SCBWI, I have been solicited by several agents and publishing houses, all eager to learn more about Elly the Polka Dotted Elephant. This has been both flattering and overwhelming.
One agent described the relationship between writer and agent as a marriage, which fills me with both exhilaration and anxiety. How do I choose my one true love!? We haven’t even been on a “date” yet! And then there are the publishing houses, who are equally as flattering. Obviously, if I get an agent, they can help me decide which house to get involved with. I never knew I’d be in a three-way relationship, but whatever works!
Well, dear readers, I beg of you to help me remain calm. If any of you have experience with an agent, I would love to hear your “love story” (how you met, how things are going now, who hogs the blanket, and other intimate details).
