Hooray!!

Just want to give a bloggy shout-out to my awesome CP and friend

LIZ!!!

Last week Liz got herself an agent, the fabulous Kate Testerman from KT Literary, who reps Stephanie Perkins (Anna and the French Kiss) and Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children), among other fab authors. (BTW, those are two books I absolutely LOVE.)

I met Liz at a writer's conference last year, and since then she has been such an invaluable friend and CP. Liz always keeps me posted on the latest blog contests and writer events--in fact, it was Liz who got me blogging, thanks to her super cute blog HERE. Liz is amazingly organized, she's mega-helped me with plot and story development, not to mention the regular nitty gritties that any writer needs to hear. She gives awesome feedback--I owe a lot to her!

Most of all, Liz has a great novel. I CAN'T wait to watch things unfold for her! So if you haven't *met* Liz yet, bebop over to her blog and check out her agent story!

What would we do without critique partners? I know mine have become some of my greatest friends!!!!

Hope you all have a great week filled with lots of happy wrtiting!! :D
