My Fairy Agent


fairy1

Did you ever want to shrink someone and carry him or her around on your shoulder all day? Like a fairy to help you make uber important decisions, keep you company, or just a bud to bounce things off of? Okay… maybe I’m kind of strange, but I've always wanted my own personal fairy.


And now I'm lucky enough to have one… A human sized one. Michelle Grajkowski of 3 Seas Literary Agency is my fairy agent.

Why is Michelle so amazing? Michelle is a fabulous agent and more… She’s a friend, a confidant, a lion in my corner, a teacher, a mentor, a guide, and most importantly, patient and honest. She's someone I admire. She's the best.


Thanks for making my dreams come true, Michelle. Happy Agent Appreciation Day! :)

At RWA last year I met an agent from 3 Seas and she was wonderful. While my book was not remotely close to completion and while it wasn't her preferred genre she gave me her card and offered to pass it along to the appropriate people for feedback when I was ready. I then proceeded to 1) lose her card in the disaster that is my apartment and 2) never write her a thank you note for the really kind offer. I think this constitutes a massive failure in my first agent interaction. However, I have a very high opinion of 3 Seas and it doesn't surprise me that you have such a wonderful fairy agent!
