I think 2013 is flirting with me

by Theo on January 29th, 2013

So far in 2013:

  • I started making concrete plans to go to the Sheep and Wool festival, one of my dream vacations, which means finally getting to meet a whole host of my long-time Ravelry friends/internet family!
  • I met with my thesis advisor to get feedback on my novel, and it went really really absurdly well. Well enough that instead of having to retreat into a revision bunker for two months, living off Cheez-Its and deadline stress, I get to do a few relatively quick passes through the manuscript, retain my normal life, and finish thesis early. It also means both members of my thesis committee have now told me, yeah, this book I’ve been working on since I was a teenager is actually salable.
  • A certain cockamamie fanworks convention scheme that’s been brewing between myself, some friends, and various associates has started to look like an actual convention we can afford to make happen. *knocks on wood*
  • Coloring book sales are still doing really damn–

Wait, back the truck up, what was that last one?

  • My coloring books are now represented by Sasha Raskin at The Agency Group.

YEAH, THAT HAPPENED. I’ve been sitting on this for a couple of weeks now, waiting for the ink to dry. Sasha reached out to me after finding one of my coloring books, and whaddya know, she was awesome and her vision for these books totally meshed with mine! Her agency is well-established and deals a lot with the sorts of books you see as gift and impulse purchases, which is a niche my coloring books fit into nicely.

I am so psyched to see where this goes. After the ridiculousness of December, I was fresh out of goals for these books, and now I’m setting new ones.

One of those goals is to say the phrase “my coloring book agent” as often as possible, preferably in a posh voice while eating finger sandwiches.

MY COLORING BOOK AGENT.

To quote a friend: I like 2013. It’s got moxie.
