My adult novel went before an agent for the first time this weekend. The Drought of Sam Dakota had placed in a contest this spring, but I had not pitched it before. The result amazed me. Industry insiders say that it is essential to find an agent who is excited by our work. This agent blew me away. Not only was she complimentary regarding my writing and my novel, but she talked career strategy. She had me seeing my work with a fresh eye because of her enthusiasm. Now, I’m headed into a fresh round of tweaks before I submit the manuscript to her. Even better, I’m headed into it with a new level of excitement.
