So… This Thing Happened Recently…

   Posted by: Faith   in Rye Thoughts

AnnouncementSomething happened last month. It was pretty exciting, and I wanted to tell you about it…

You ready?


Wait for it…

Wait for it…

Wait… for… it…


I’m now represented by Gina Panettieri of Talcott Notch Literary!!!


…yeah, I’m a little stunned too.

Which novel managed this feat, you ask? My YA dark fairy tale retelling:

Cinderella, Necromancer


Yes, it took me five years to get here and a lifetime of dreaming (literally).

Yes, it took five full novels of various genres and several partially-completed disasters before hitting the right note on number six.

Yes, it took much self-doubt, joy, confusion, frustration, moments of genius, and moments of agony.

But you know what?

If you don’t give up, you can make your dreams come true. Hey, I know it’s cliche, but it’s a cliche for a reason, okay?!

This is just a rung on the ladder, but when you keep pushing forward and refuse to look down? There’s nowhere to go but up.

Thanks, everyone, for sticking with me and thanks for reading (even though I have a terrible habit of not posting regularly… I’ll try to fix that, honest!!!).

And cheers to your own dreams. If I can take a step forward, you can too!!! Open-mouthed smile
