|If the fairy's hat were made of|
a stack of books, this would be
Joy's perfect costume for Halloween 2014.
After my book was *completely* ignored in the Pitch Wars agent round, Joy checked on me every few weeks, told me not to give up, and prodded me to keep sending my query to agents. Because she believed in my manuscript.
Lo and behold ... I signed with agent Stephen Barbara of Foundry Media earlier this month.
Joy tagged me in the "My Writing Process" blog tour. She just completed a new middle grade novel that I can't wait to hear about. Visit Joy's blog to read her "My Writing Process" post.
(P.S. Joy is an awesome critique partner/mentor/editor. I bet she keeps her fairy bookmother wand in her back pocket.)
Since my children have influenced my writing, I asked my daughter Julia to conduct the interview. Here are the mandatory questions:
a) What are you working on?
b) How does your work differ from others of its genre?
c) Why do you write what you do?
