Brainstorm Had a Blogstorm

Diana Peterfreund guested on my agency blog this afternoon with a brilliant discussion about HIGH CONCEPT ideas. Go check it out!

I have huge news--I just signed on a wonderful new author, Jaci Burton!! She's a friend to many of you around these blog parts, and also a member of our new network, Out of the Blogosphere, and so I thought I'd spill the beans HERE. :) Jaci has written twenty books for Ellora's Cave and we're going to be working together to move her into publication with New York publishers. You can visit her blog here:

Jaci, I'm so excited to have you join our agency team!

Congrats to you both! I've been lucky enough to have worked with Jaci for over two years now and I'm thrilled to be 'sharing' her with you, Deidre, and eventually with New York!

Thanks so much for sharing her with me, Briana! :) She's a wonderful writer and I am LOVING her EC books!! This will be exciting, won't it??? And thanks for posting! Deidre

Jaci Burton said...

Thank you Deidre! I'm so thrilled to be working with you and can't wait to see what happens down the road! Guess I should blog about this myself now, huh? ;-)

And thanks so much, Bree! You made me cry!

I need a cocktail! Champagne anyone? *g*


Ellen Fisher said...

Ooooh, how exciting!!! Congrats, Jaci! You're an awesome writer and I'm sure you'll take New York by storm!

Jaci Burton said...

thanks Ellen! :)


Bonnie Ferguson said...

Congratulations Jaci :)

Melani Blazer said...

Congrats to BOTH of you and here's to many successful years of bookselling for both of you :)

Jaci, just another step in the success you deserve, sweetie.

Deidre, I'm a bit biased, but I think you made an excellent choice choosing to represent Jaci~ her books rock!

(And Bree, you made me sniffle too, silly!)

~Mel, fortunate enough to have been Jaci's CP and buddy for many years. *beaming proudly at her friend*

Jaci Burton said...

Thanks Bonnie! Love you Mel :D


Deidre Knight said...

Jaci, you have some fabulous friends and supporters. Why does that not surprise me?

CJBurton said...

Hummmm, my wife has an agent. I don't have an agent. Trying to decide how I feel about this. It kinda seems like she's got a bigger gun than I do, or a faster car than I do. Gonna have to think some more on this. I may need an agent too.

Jaci Burton said...

Yes, Deidre..CJ is my husband, who clearly has 'my gun is bigger than yours' issues *g*


Deidre Knight said...

Jaci and CJ (Funny!) you two are hysterical. It's okay--I'm my own husband's agent. Now doesn't THAT put a twist on things?
