Just a quick post from me today… I’ve been redrafting like a demon and now I’m out of time… things to do, things to do. But it’s a glorious day here today, and it’s been like this all week. I’m especially pleased because one of the Victorian Darklings is in Sydney this week attending an ASA (Australian Society of Authors) course, and it’s pretty hard not falling in love with this town when it’s looking like this. I hope she’s swooning.
Actually, I daresay she really is: I know you’ll all be thrilled to hear that Jenny had her meeting with Australia’s largest and oldest literary agency yesterday, and she’s officially been offered representation. WOOHOO!!! They’re signing contracts on Friday, and then she’s away! IT CAN HAPPEN. It really can happen. And in this case, it couldn’t happen to a better person. We’re all beside ourselves with Darkling pride, shaking our feathers and waddling around the pond perimeter quacking with glee. It’s so incredibly exciting, and what’s even better is that I’ll be seeing Jenny tomorrow night and buying her a congratulatory drink in person. You know how I love serendipity, and it’s wonderfully serendipitous that here Jenny is this week, in Sydney, just in time to be signed to an agent and go out clicking her heels with three of the four other Darklings. What are the chances of that? Ordinarily, pretty slim. So it’s pretty outrageous that it’s all happening at just the right time.
Jenny, Darkling, Changeling, published author, represented author and all round good egg, I salute you with love.
