An Offer I Can't Refuse

Two short months ago Bethany announced "I Have an Agent" and today I'm beyond thrilled to share the same news.

I have accepted an offer of representation from Brendan Deneen of Fineprint Literary Management. I've worked with Brendan in the past over at the QueryTracker blog, so I already know what a terrific guy he is, and I'm honored to be working with him in this capacity. For more info about which project of mine caught his eye, check out Mary's post on the QTblog.

What makes my journey and Bethany's unique is that we set out together when we made a pact to write. Seven years and many novels later, we have reached agenthood within six weeks of each other. I love ya, sis, and have enjoyed sharing this journey with you!

Thanks to each and every one of you who follow this blog and who have offered your unfailing support. You have helped me grow as a writer and as a friend.

Warmest wishes,

Suzy

Bethany Wiggins said...

Corey, check out the photo of Suzette and I standing together, found on the right side of the blog. If the picture doesn't answer your sister question... All right. Literal, blood, we-share-the-same-parents sisters.

Secretia said...

Great news, I know you must be excited! The best of luck now!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Congrats, Suzy, on the great news! I just read the blurbs for your MG books on your website. They sound really cool. I can't wait to read them. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll be seeing them in the bookstore soon (soon for the publishing industry, that is).

Suzette Saxton said...

I can't thank you all enough for your wonderful comments. You have made my day over and over again.

It's true - we are literal sisters - and even our parents (and very occasionally, with much chagrin, our husbands) get us mixed up. We grew up in a big family, and all six of us kids answer to "Su-Ti-Be-Ma-Bri-Na" which is the sound our mom made as she scrolled through the list of names, trying to figure out which one to call us. ;)

Sliding on the Edge said...

Wonderful news, Suzy. Sounds like you have a great agent.

Tonya Kappes said...
