That One Yes


Querying literary agents is often a slog, lasting multiple years and multiple manuscripts, generating dozens, hundreds, maybe even thousands of rejections — but in the end, you only need one agent to love your book. That’s it. One query, one agent, and one yes.

Well, two months ago, I got that yes.

I am incredibly happy to announce that I am now represented by literary agent Luigi Bonomi of LBA!

I’m so excited to work with the LBA team on the books I love — psychological thrillers with dark twists, emotional arcs, and positive feminist messages — and I really hope we’ll be able to share these stories with you soon. (Although “soon” in publishing terms is roughly a decade, so…)

I’ve wanted to be a published author since I was little, and being noticed by an agent feels like taking a huge step towards that dream. There’s plenty more hard work to come and absolutely no guarantees of anything, but for now, I’m happy and proud and excited and all those other good emotions, and I can’t wait to see what happens in the autumn.

I’ll write a proper “How I Got My Agent” post with all the details another time, but for now, I just want to put this marker down:

I finished a book, I put it out there, and I found an agent who believes in me.

Take that, depression.
