I HAVE A LITERARY AGENT!!!!!!

This is a dream come true and I am so excited to be sharing this news with you!


I wrote my book, THE HONEY WITCH, in May of this year. After a summer of editing, I participated in #DVPit on twitter and thus began my querying journey for this book. 18 queries, 10 full requests, 4 offers of representation later, and I am so proud to announce that I am officially represented by the magical Mollie Glick at Creative Artists Agency.


I will do an official "How I got my agent" post that includes my query letter and the many many failures I went through before I got to this point, but for now, let me gush about Mollie: I genuinely feel like the luckiest person in the world to get to work with her. Her vision for my book brought me to tears (happy tears). She may be the coolest person alive. She is brilliant, funny, and SO talented. I have so much respect and admiration for her, and I'm so honored to be her client. From our first phone call, Mollie made me feel like I was allowed to believe in myself and my book. She spoke to me like a peer, which is a rare experience as a gen-z author who is often the youngest in the room.


In many ways, this was a difficult decision. I never expected to have so many offers of representation, and the other agents were phenomenal in their own right. Declining offers from incredible agents is a heartbreaking process, but ultimately, I knew that Mollie was the one for me. I felt it from the moment we got on the phone, and it was solidified when I spoke with her incredible clients who absolutely adore her.


I could not be more excited to begin working together on this book, and the many many books that will follow.


Thank you all so much for supporting me and sharing your endless enthusiasm for my work. Remember—I WRITE FOR YOU!!!!!! And I hope that you love the work that I create alongside my agent because it is all for you. <3


Okay, now I'm going to update my bios on socials to say "Rep'd by Mollie Glick."


Talk soon, friends!
