If you’ve followed this blog at all, you know full well that I consider my literary agent, Sara Megibow of the Nelson Literary Agency, to be truly awesome. I’m really lucky to have her in my corner, especially with all the stuff surrounding Night Shade Books of late.
The story of how she became my agent is a pretty good one, and it’s featured in the May/June issue of Writer’s Digest, in the magazine’s regular “Breaking In” feature. It’s both exciting and a little humbling be in a magazine devoted to writers and writing, especially as a newbie. And Sara deserves all the kudos she gets for her hard work and good humor.
Of course, I would suggest that you run out and get a copy of the magazine, especially if you’re an aspiring writer, because it has lots of good stuff on writing and publishing besides my little bit. But I’ve also scanned the article in here because, well, I’m pretty stoked about it, and the cover of The Daedalus Incident just looks so nice in print.
Also, if you’re interested in how literary agents do their jobs and what goes into their decision making, you should follow Sara on Twitter. She does a lot of insightful, useful things there. Because, again, she’s awesome.
