The awesome Kody Keplinger, author of THE DUFF, had an idea...a wonderful idea...to make December 11th sort of an unofficial Happy Agent Day.
So here's to you, Chris Richman.
INSERT EYE OF THE TIGER OR SOME OTHER APPROPRIATE THEME SONG FROM A SPORTS MOVIE WHERE AN UNDERDOG INEXPLICABLY RISES ABOVE AND OVERCOMES THE ODDS.
In all seriousness, it's been a little over a year since I signed with Chris, and I really wouldn't be where I am without him. He knows that I'm stubborn and bull headed and that I often have to experience things for myself before I understand them, and he's still patient with me and guides me through this crazy publishing thing. There are a lot of really talented agents out there, and Chris is one of them, but he's also got something in spades that sets him apart: integrity.
Of course he loses points for having cats instead of a dog, but no one's perfect.
Chris has been there to fight for me when he knew my book was worth being published, and to push me when he knew I could do better. So thank you, Chris. Here's to the next year and here's to you!
If you head over to Lisa and Laura Write, you can see a list of everyone who's sharing the love.
