new client

This week I’m welcoming author Loreth Anne White to my client list. Her blog is at http://lorethannewhite.com/blog/, which I’ve added to the sidebar here as well (and I’ve set up an LJ feed). Loreth is the author of several compelling novels for the Harlequin Silhouette Suspense line. Her most recent release is The Heart Of A Renegade.

from her website:
Loreth Anne White was born and raised in southern Africa, but now lives in Whistler, a ski resort in the moody British Columbian Coast Mountain range. It’s a place of vast, wild and often dangerous mountains, larger-than-life characters, epic adventure, and romance — the perfect place to escape reality. It’s no wonder it was here she was inspired to abandon a 16-year career as a reporter, features writer, and editor (under the name Loreth Beswetherick) to escape into a world of romantic fiction filled with dangerous men and adventurous women. When she’s not writing you will find her long-distance running, biking or skiing on the trails, and generally trying to avoid the bears – albeit not very successfully. She calls this work, because it’s when the best ideas come.

This is my 6th new client this year. That’s the same as the number of clients that I signed up in all of 2007, so it looks like 2008 is going to be an even busier year! I’m really thrilled to be finding so many talented writers and so much new material. I wonder what novel will be the 7th to knock me over the head and drag my back to its cave….

  1. Good for both of you!

  2. Oh, I know – maybe it will be mine!
    Um, except for that part where I haven’t written a novel or anything. That part – I could see it being problematic. Ish.

  3. Congratulations to the both of you! :*) It’s only April and you have 6. I hope you don’t get to the point where you don’t want any new clients. That would really suck for me. :*(

  4. Query Timing
    Are there peak times of year that are better for querying agents? I’ve noticed that in January there seemed to be an almost newbie like enthusiasm to review queries. At that time of year there were quick responses; rejections and requests for submissions. However, in the ensuing months it seems that enthusiasm has waned; fewer and fewer if any responses at all.

  5. Wow. Congratulations! Wow!

  6. *pops sparkling* (or, y’know, a nice aged red…)
    *pesters DMLA for more staff/cabana boys, so Madame Agent can still manage some needful downtime*

  7. As a matter of curiosity, how many clients do you actually have now? And how many do you think you can reasonably take on, given the workload that each of them will generate?

  8. *applauds new author!*

  9. Oh, yay! I love Loreth!

  10. Naturally, I am thrilled :)Thank you for the welcome!
    *blush* – you’re too sweet, Alison.

  11. Congratulations to both of you!

  12. Congratulations!
    Hopefully, this will be a stellar year for you both.

  13. The more the merrier! Congratulations!

  14. I love Loreth’s books. I hope you have many successes together!

  15. A belated yay! for the both of you and a dancing cat.
