A few weeks ago, I posted on how clicking the send button on my query to my truly fabulous agent changed my life. Today is the official one-year anniversary of my signing with the rockstar, Suzie Townsend.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think that less than a year later we’d have Personal Demons on the shelves. (and I’m sure neither did she) But she’s the Suzinator: kicking publishing butt and taking names. She’s also an editorial genius. When I went back to check dates (yes, I've saved every email) and looked at some of her notes, I realized that everything she asked me to revise before we went on submission (and I thought I did) were the same things that the editors that gave us revision notes asked for even more of. She's always available (we think she's a vampire cuz she never sleeps) and is cheerleader extraordinaire.
So this is for Suzie. Imagine it's Red Velvet. =)
Thanks for all your hard work, Suzie! You totally rock!
