My friend, Natalie Whipple has an agent! The Nathan Bransford. If you're not a writer it might be hard to appreciate how big of an accomplishment this is. Let's just say there are three major steps in getting a book into the bookstores for all to read.
First step: Write a book.
Second step: Land an agent.
Third step: Land a publisher.
The second step helps you with the third step. In fact, it's nearly impossible to do the third step, without the second. Soooo, if you have a minute, hop on over to Natalie's blog and give her a much deserved congratulations. I just happen to be one of the few who have read all her books (I state smugly) and I know she has earned this. I couldn't be happier that this has finally happened for Natalie. This girl is full of creative genius and she's a super supportive and amazing friend to her fellow writers as well.
Wow that's great! I've heard about some of her books from Candi and they sound really good. And isn't bradford the one that does the one paragraph compititions?ReplyDelete
Isn't it great when our friends succeed? Meanwhile, we keep working.ReplyDelete
Matthew, yes, her books are awesome. And yes, he is the one that does the one paragraph contests. She won his last one with the first paragraph of the book he just signed. :)ReplyDelete
Midlife, I love it when those around me are successful. It motivates me. :)
Okay, you can so hug me today! Also, I love how you took the time to explain how big of a deal STEP 2 is!ReplyDelete
Holy crap—I finally made it to STEP 2!
Yep, huge congrats to Natalie!!! One day I will read them all. :DReplyDelete
WHOOHOO! I'll stop by and congratulate her!ReplyDelete
Natalie, how dare you tease me with a hug when you know I can't get to you. :) I'll be saving it. LOL And, yes, step 2 is HUGE! A step a lot of writer's never make.ReplyDelete
Michelle, I'm sure you will. :) Just like maybe one day I will read your books. (hint, hint)
Kathryn, I'm loving your workshop posts. And yes, go congratulate her.
Woohoo to Natalie! I love when good things happen to good writers. :DReplyDelete
Hmmm...still working on step 1. Feeling a little behind. YEA FOR NATALIE!ReplyDelete
But those of us who are familiar with the publishing world absolutely DO know what a huge accomplishment step 2 is! And Natalie is there!!ReplyDelete
Yay for Natalie!ReplyDelete
He's one of the best...at least that's what those of us who are addicted to his blog believe. He's the Holy Grail of agents!ReplyDelete
