The Guide to Literary Agents regularly has a "How I Got My Agent" post. Given that I don't have an agent, I've decided to fantasize the event based on those HIGMAs in the Guide. Yeah, like that happens.
As I crouched there, unaware of the crowd around me, somebody tripped over me and fell flat on their face. Luckily, their face was firmly planted in my ms! How lucky is that!? Well, gosh oh gee, it was my dream agent. OMG, how could I have been so lucky!? Anyway, my dream agent's nose pushed aside the top layer of perfect-wrap-for-my-angel-vampire-hidden-code-in-Vatican ms. As her eyes crossed attempting to see just what she'd smacked into, she read my first sentence. OMG, she hopped up and immediately offered representation! How lucky is that!?
More coming later. Enjoy!
