K is for KUDOS!

There's a party going on right here



And this is a BIG FAT KUDOS going out to my friend Leigh Moore over at That's Write.

Why, you ask? She just signed with lit agent Kate McKean for her YA historical romance, Rogue. She won the contest on Miss Snark's First Victim Secret Agent contest and Kate liked her story so much, signed her on. I'm just jumping with joy for Leigh.

Check out the story from the link on Leigh's blog and congratulate her. These kinds of success stories just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Kudos to Leigh!

And in the spirit of K day, here's a little Kool & the Gang....

This one's going out to you, Leigh ....

This is so exciting for Leigh. Miss Snark's FV contests seem to have a VERY high rate of success for 1st time authors--especially YA. It's a a matter of luck trying to get your submission into the 30-second window, but if you get in--it's a fantastic chance for a serious read from an agent.

That is exciting with a BIG E ... great news to celebrate. I agree with Anne ... if you can get in Snark's First Victim is a good place to get "heard."

Hey, Cool is too too Cool and takes me back to ... well never mind what it takes me back to ... this is the best thing to celebrate.

Leigh, you go girl and the best of all in your career :)
