My friend, Jamie Ayres, signed a contract with Curiosity Quills. She’s really big into blogging, and after browsing her fave blogs – and knowing my intern days were numbered – I entered a blog hop, interested in meeting other writers.
The rest is history!
Not enough? Okay…
I read Tonya’s blog, found snippets of her Haute Mess, and chatted to Nicole about her. I told Nicole I thought the premise was interesting and worth checking out.
Wait?!? What?!? Nicole already knew Tonya, remembered her query from last spring, and thought she had a fresh voice.
*Sniffle* But I thought I found her, not the other way around. I found her. That’s my story for now and forever.
But wait. There’s more behind-the-scenes action.
After a flurry of intense emails to Mary Sue and Nicole, it was confirmed that I – intern turned agent – could indeed choose my replacement. Many qualified candidates approached me. Having read my blog where I announced my new position, enthusiastic hopefuls threw their credentials into the intern ring.
When the dust settled – and after the thorough background investigation conducted by my super secret investigator came back clear – I knew it was time to prepare for “the call.”
How did I prepare?
I charged my phone and I stretched. Including splits and bridges. I did a couple cartwheels.
It’s always best to get those out of the way ahead of time. That way, during the excitement, there’s minimal risk of spontaneous cartwheels ending in injury.
Thanks for stopping by! As always, wonderful comments are appreciated, and one random commenter will win goodies!
Stay tuned for Wednesday’s post about “The Call.”
