Furiously preparing for my Practice Pitch tomorrow at the Maryland Writers’ Conference, I am so stoked to be sitting down with Jessica Sinsheimer an agent with Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency! She seems amazing and really down to earth. Well, from what I can tell of her Twitter feed and posts on various other websites. (Stalk much? Not really…)
Any who, this will be the first time I am even in the room with an agent of any sort and there will be tons of them at this conference! I am super excited because one of my new friends, Ernessa T. Carter, the writer of 32 Candles, is someone Jessica pulled out of the slush pile!
Talk about serendipity…
Well, here’s a look at my hook for The Wayward Wife:

I can’t wait to talk to her about it and get some awesome feedback. She’s been on twitter posting some really lame, really short, query letters and I am glad to say mine isn’t short…
Let’s just hope she thinks its something either she can work with or that someone out there in agent land will want to take on!
