I'm excited to announce that I am now officially repped by the fabulous Jessica Schmeidler!  If interested, you can read my full story here, It's long, but it's also not your traditional tale. 

 

Thanks to all the folks here who provided feedback.  As always, you guys are amazing. Thank you!

  • Publishing Experience:My debut novel, "The Sister Queens," (March 2012/NAL), was set in 13th century France and England and wove the captivating story of sisters, Marguerite and Eleanor of Provence, who both became queens. My next solo novel, "Medicis Daughter," (Dec 1 2015/Thomas Dunne) traveled forward three-hundred years to the intrigue-riven French Valois court, spinning the tale of beautiful princess Marguerite who walks the knife edge between the demands of her serpentine mother, Catherine de Medicis, and those of her own conscience.

    In between I became a "hybrid" as part of a group of six authors involved in a high concept novel-in-six-parts called "A Day of Fire" which released in November of 2014. The book, "A Day of Fire," tells the story of the final days of the doomed city of Pompeii in a way you've never read it before.

Big congrats! You are more proof to the naysayers that the dream of being an author is realistic as long as you keep working for it :).

Just read your blog. Congratulations! That's inspiring (and gives me a few ideas).  :biggrin:

Read your blog! Super jealous over here, don't mind me. Seriously though, never would have thought picking up an agent from contests! That's something to consider!
