Sign Your Name

I love contracts. Like truly, positively, super duper love them. They delight me to no end because I’m eternally grateful to have the opportunity to sign them. I hear that eventually, some authors lose their enthusiasm over contracts. I can’t quite wrap my brain around this concept, especially since I tend to operate anywhere between excited and seriously overly excited! when it comes to the Jade-Excitement-o-Meter (particularly with contracts). That’s just how I roll—a bit squealy and over-enthusiastic, most the time.

But here’s the deal—I’ve been waiting to share some thrilling news that involved a very important contract. It’s the kind of news that made the Jade-Excitement-o-Meter shoot into the high heavens before resulting in a fair amount of celebratory shenanigans. It’s something I’d been working on for a couple months, but now that it’s happened and I’m all signed and sealed…

I am delighted to share that my work is now represented by the lovely Jessica Alvarez of BookEnds Literary Agency.

Jade's signature

I’ve been working with Jessica for about a month, and even this early, I’m wowed. Currently we’re working on the book I finished writing earlier this year. It’s the first of a series, and I’m excited (again, excited!) to tell you more about it when we get further along in the process.

For now, I will just say I’m really damn enthralled (read: squealy and seriously wow kind of enthralled) to have Jessica represent my longer works!

Thank you for sharing the news with me.

Time for me to get back to work! 🙂

  1. Jade! That’s amazing! Congratulations. And I totally get what you mean about contract-related excitement. Getting to put your squiggle underneath that NAME OF AUTHOR bit is a rush.

    Yay! *swings pom poms*
