I "signed" with Julia Lord Literary Management. I'm excited and Julia and agent Ginger Curwen sound excited too. Ginger gave my manuscript, White with Fish, Red with Murder, a good read. From talking to her, I feel as if she really understood what I was trying to do. She seemed to catch all the obscure allusions and the spirit of fun. Julia has great enthusiasm for the book, and I hope she's right because it sounds like she has higher hopes for it than I did. She was knocked out of her W. 9th St. office by Hurricane Sandy, but called me from her temp. quarters in Western Mass. to offer representation.
They're a great pair for me to be working with as a first time novelist. Let's hope this is the beginning of a wonderful partnership.
