Exciting News!

by sarahenni on April 1, 2013

Breaking the blog silence because I have (as promised in the heading) something super exciting to announce 1:

I am now represented by Sarah Burnes with The Gernert Company!

~/interlude~

I haven’t discussed my current project all that much, but it’s a contemporary romance. That’s something Sarah knows all about, as she represents Gayle Forman and Natalie Standiford, both of whom I adore.

Sarah was so enthusiastic about the book, and her thoughts on revisions made so much sense, I know she’s just the partner I need to help move on to the next step2! Yay!

  1. And no, this isn’t an April Fool’s day joke! I would never do that to you guys. Just was too anxious to wait till tomorrow to announce.
  2. I also want to thank Logan Garrison, who has been communicating with me as Sarah’s assistant and an agent at Gernert in her own right, and who is obviously amazing because she agrees with Jessica and I about Dashboard Confessional’s enduring value and unparalleled earworm status!

Obviously, it is not enough that I congratulated you on twitter. So CONGRATS AGAIN!!! Eeeee! And as someone who experienced the magic of confetti cannons on the dancefloor last weekend, I hope your celebrations are full of confetti cannons and cake (but maybe not together all at once…unless the confetti is edible?)! <3

Oh my gosh you actually got to experience confetti canon IRL?! I need to party with you, girl! Also I think you are on to something with this edible confetti idea!! <3 <3 Thank you so much!

Krispy April 1, 2013 at 1:36 pm

You are welcome to party with me any time! If not confetti, there will be In-n-Out! ;)

The confetti cannons were at my friend’s wedding. During our pre-wedding chatter over the past year, her then-fiance had been joking about / set on getting confetti cannons for the reception. We didn’t actually think it’d happen, but he made it happen. IT WAS THE BEST.

(Sadly, edible confetti looks like it’s just sprinkles… http://img2.etsystatic.com/il_570xN.208671882.jpg )
