I Have an Agent!

Me_Signing2

I’m excited to announce that I have signed on with Hartline Literary Agency!

I met Cyle Young, my new agent, at this year’s Florida Christian Writers Conference. I told him about the children’s books I’ve written as well as the book I’m writing for young women (Girls with Gusto). It turns out that Cyle writes in a lot of different genres, including children’s books. And he’s a pastor, which I think is a very neat combination.

I’m honored that Cyle has agreed to represent me on behalf of Hartline, and I believe that our hard work will result in publication. Everything I write is intended for God’s glory, and I trust that if God is giving me a message to share that He will pave the way for it to be successful. (See Isaiah 55:11.)

Thanks to all of you who continue to support me here at BigSisterKnows. Your comments, likes, shares, and your prayers are appreciated more than you know. Please continue to pray for guidance, wisdom, and favor—for me and for Hartline.

“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21 NAS

I need your help!

I just signed up to attend the Florida Christian Writers Conference again this coming February, where I plan to pitch two different books to editors. There’s a catch, though. The big publishers require us writers to have thousands—yes, thousands!—of followers before they will consider publishing our books.

Over the past year and a half, I’ve taken a deep dive into writing and blogging, and I have been humbled and honored by the positive responses you’ve shared with me. Now, I have a favor to ask of you: if you’re not already following this blog via email, or signed up to get the monthly newsletter, please do so.

I hate to ask, but Big Sisters need help sometimes, too.

Help

Please help me get published by:

  1. Signing up to follow the blog.

Don’t rely on Facebook or Twitter posts! Instead, sign up to receive these posts directly in your email to ensure you don’t miss a word.

To sign up, simply enter your email address in the box on the front page of BigSisterKnows.com.

2. Signing up for the newsletter and becoming a Friend of Big Sister.

In addition to the weekly blog, I’ll be revamping the monthly newsletter. It will include special information, updates, and freebies (like recipe cards!) that won’t be published within the blog posts. I’ll also ask for suggestions, thoughts, and feedback on upcoming blog topics, so you’ll have an opportunity to help determine the content for the site.

To sign up for the newsletter, go to the page Become a Friend of Big Sister.

Appreciation

To show my appreciation, if you sign up to follow the blog and/or the newsletter, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win one of two gift boxes, each valued around $40. I shopped with a friend, my mother, and my little sister to pick out each item, focusing on little treasures that are useful, helpful, or encouraging.  (Guys, these are worth winning for the lady in your life!)

The drawing will be held on 12/1/16, and I will notify the winners via email.

If you’re already following BigSisterKnows and you’re signed up to get the newsletter—thank you for your support!!
