Umm, I *was* going to get all refined...BUT....






Everyone say hello to ... no, NOT to me. 
I'm the royal spazz, I mean, LOOK at that goofy grin!
Say hello to the lovely, kind, encouraging, smart, wise, soft spoken, elegant Mary Keeley. 



Mary Keeley is an agent with Books and Such Literary Agency.


Okay Redheads, ask me why I'm smiling so big.

"Why are you smiling like a whack job?"

Umm, I said "so big", but thanks anyway.



Redheads...
Mary Keeley is my agent.

Yup. MY agent.

As of 9:40 am-ish , Indianapolis time, Mary Keeley became my agent. And I became a Bookie!!!



God is GOOD.  SO very, very good. He waited til Mary and I were in the same location to give her the opportunity to blow me away. And "blow me away" is pretty much exactly it!!

Ohhh, poor Mary, now she knows what face I make when I cry like a pinched 3 year old who didn't get any cake at some other kid's birthday party.





But...

I am exhausted. I got home at 2am, I am nowhere near able to write a long blogpost about what happened. But suffice it to say, I am truly overjoyed, humbled and...
ready to work.

  8. Truly thrilled for you, but not surprised, as I told you before you went to ACFW. That great look on your face combines being pleased w/ happy tears, and both are very suitable. You're on your way. I'll hope for autographed copies one day. More than heartfelt congratulations!
