Agents Day!

Happy Agents Day to all the wonderful literary agents out there! And especially to my amazing agent, Naomi Davis of Inklings Literary.

I read these posts when I was looking for more info on agents, so let me tell you querying writers out there a few of the many things I love about Naomi:

Enthusiasm: Having an agent who is genuinely stoked about your work is the best feeling in the world.

Professionalism: I know I’m in great hands with Naomi. I can trust her with my book and my career without any worries or qualms.

Communicativeness: Naomi is wonderfully responsive, and has an uncanny knack for sending me updates and check-ins at the exact right time.

Creative partnership: Brainstorming with Naomi is awesome. She really GETS my book, and has the best insights for revisions and future directions. And when she’s made suggestions that didn’t feel quite right to me, and I’ve come back with “How about THIS instead?”, she’s always been like “YES! Even better!”

I could go on and on, but I only have a few minutes to make this post, so I have to stop there. Suffice to say, she’s AWESOME.

I’m so glad to have such a fantastic agent in my corner. Thank you, Naomi, for everything you do.
