Or is it that "my novel has representation." Or am I "handled" by an agent? (No, that makes me seem like a troublesome basketball star.) Anyway, I need to figure out the lingo so I can be all professionally casual. But right now, there's no casual. All those cliches about being excited - that's me. Each time I say "my agent," goosebumps and giggling follow.
So check out Joan Timberlake. She's my agent.
P.S. Obviously, this photo is so not of me. It's of Aaron Fotheringham.
