But then, she sent me her real post...

So my super-duper, awesome, wonderful, exciting news is…
I have an agent - awesome Marisa Cleveland!
And wonderful Talynn is the one who first connected us.
Back in February Talynn held a pitch contest at Ink in the Book. Writers gave short pitches on her blog, and agents invited writers to send in their work. Ms. Cleveland liked the premise of my manuscript and requested a partial. A few months passed, and I connected with Ms. Cleveland and her colleague several times through other pitches and even a conference. At the end of May, I followed up with her and she read the full of my story. She offered to represent me that same day! Yippee!
So thank you, thank you, thank you to Talynn and her pitch contest because without it, I wouldn't have connected with my agent. These online pitches are a great way to get your work out there and find someone who is a good match for you. Best of luck to everyone!
