Announcement! I have signed with Joshua Bilmes, the president of JABberwocky Literary Agency.

Yes, you read that correctly. Joshua Bilmes at JABberwocky offered representation which I accepted. Joshua has a stellar record which speaks for itself, and he represents skillful and celebrated authors such as Brandon Sanderson, Peter V. Brett, Michael J. Sullivan, Elizabeth Moon, and Myke Cole, to name a few.

I’ve been keeping this exciting potential development under wraps for a while, as Joshua and I had numerous phone calls and emails, discussed my career so far and what I’m working on, and he considered the first book in a new hexalogy I’m writing.

As I’ve stated previously, my goal is to follow the hybrid author path — that is, to pursue indie publishing along with traditional publishing deals. And this is massive and welcome step which will hopefully open many doors.

As an author, you are the CEO of You, Inc., and an entrepreneur. My goals center around creating quality books and products, building a long term career, and growing a sustainable income that enables me to spend more time writing. Signing with such a reputable agent is akin to collaborating with a business partner to achieve mutually beneficial goals.

I have many years of writing ahead of me, and plenty of ideas and books I’m working on (too many at once, possibly!). And with some self published works released, a trilogy with HarperVoyager, a duology with 47North, and various deals with Audible, this is just the beginning!

I hope you’ll join me on this exciting ride, as it could be a wild one!

And many thanks to Michael J Sullivan and his wife Robin for the introduction! I owe them so many drinks now…
