New Agent!

Posted on 2008.08.17 at 04:21
Wonderful news!

As of today, Colleen Lindsay is my agent!  Some you who are reading this already know her, and will understand why I'm so excited.  Before she took a job at FinePrint Literary Management, Colleen was a publicist for Del Rey/Ballantine, and as many SF, fantasy and horror writers can attest, she was one of the best damn publicists in the book world.  Now she brings all her expertise to representing writers, and I feel so privileged to have her represent me.   One thing that really impresses me is her attitude toward writers--not only does she see the relationships as partnerships, she wants to help her writers build long term careers.  The official announcement won't go up on her blog until next week, but she kindly gave me permission to break the news here.  For great advice and links on writing, publishing and query letters, I invite you to check out her blog.  

Colleen Lindsay--The Swivet

You'll also find plenty of snark, a good amount of silliness, and a cat-filled window into the daily life of an agent.

new agent news

I am very excited for you of the news that a caring and exceptional agent will officially lend her expertise to bring into surface a book worth marvelling, the one of many which will soon occupy a place in every readers' limitless void of wonder, the void of the vivid imagination! I think I'm going to go out, eat a good meal and drink wine for you, Robert. Yes, I will do that right now!

Be well my dear friend!

Hansel

Welcome to the pack! (This is S. E. Ward in fannish guise--I don't normally look like an owl with teeth.) Colleen's awesome, and she's very patient; she has to be to put up with me. ;)

Good to have you around, and good luck with your writing!

Kelly,

Thank you so much! I'm humbled by the company. Hope Colleen takes your books to that undiscovered country, and look forward to reading your work. Keep me posted, I will do whatever I can to help her peeps get exposure in the brick and mortar where I work.
