Emily Keyes from L. Perkins Agency

Let me introduce Emily Keyes. Her profile says she’s passionate about YA novels. Well, I may have sparked her flames in my manuscript! Quote:

“I’ve only read the first four pages but I already know I’m going to request the full manuscript.”

“I really get the feeling of Aine’s breathless excitement about her date. I’ve found that is very hard to convey without sounding cheesy. Also, I love the line(s):” “Thanks, Emma. You won’t regret it!” I promised as I dashed off to my room. But, she would and so would I.” “I almost think you should open with that.”


That was all in the email sent Monday February 06, 2011 received at 8:32 pm

Wow I was that excited. So I sent the whole tamale this morning. She could still hate it, I know. It’s a great honor to have an agent request my work.

I’m humbled.
