I'm yours! Or they're mine (depending on how you view the author/agent relationship!).
Two contracts (one for me to send back, one for me to keep), a covering letter and a map showing me how to get to the offices arrived this morning.
Here's me signing the contract this morning. I felt like I should do it with some kind of fancy pen (but I don't have a fancy pen so made do with my favourite ballpoint!)
The contract is now in the post, winging its way to London.
Is it sad that I've already framed the letter that says "Welcome to the Agency!" and put it on my desk?
I've been asked to send the agent the first 3 chapters of novel #2 so am currently working through it, desperately trying to polish it (considering it's a first draft) and worrying that it's not nearly as compelling/funny/loveable as novel #1! Oh that getting an agent meant you stopped worrying about your writing being shit!
