Monday Featured Blog – Rachelle Gardner, Literary Agent
I hope you all had a great weekend ;o) I did, we got a new doggie – he’s 1 year old (same age as Maya) He’s a Shepard/Retriever Mix. Here’s a pic ;o) We love him!
Well, we have a really awesome featured blog today. I expect most of you are following her, but for those who have not had the pleasure, meet Rachelle Gardner, Literary Agent – Rants and Ramblings – On Life as a Literary Agent. Her blog is packed full of helpful posts on anything writing. A recent one that I really connected with is Where Rubber Meets Road. The last words in this post are just so eloquent and relevant.
“When your moment of truth comes, remind yourself: They told me it would be hard. This is what hard feels like. I can do this.”
Another great one (trust me I’m finding it hard to pick just a couple – all her posts are fantastic!) is Craft – Story – Voice in which she discusses what makes her say “Yes” to a submission. It’s great stuff folks!
There are certain literary agent blogs every aspiring author should follow – Rachelle Gardner’s is one of them. I learn something in every post – about myself, about writing, about publishing. She has it all. Trust me on that ;o)
Her profile info reads –
I’m a literary agent, a writer and a book editor. I’m the wife of a firefighter, mom of two amazing daughters, and a follower of Christ. I love music, books, Starbucks, American Idol, and everything outdoors.
You can find her on Twitter as RachelleGardner.
Onto another award! Wow, I feel so loved lately – lots of awards ;o) Emily over at The 2010 Numbers Game gave me the Sunshine Award – very cool, thanks so much Emily – make sure to check out her wonderful blog!
I would like to pass this along to all of you – because you all make me smile and bring sunshine to my life ;o) I know I’m cheating, but I can’t pick and choose who to give sunshine to. Come on… ya know me ;o)
