Writers, Agents and Friends Unite

     ::Yaya comes screeching into her office, slipping on the waxed floor, anxious to say hello to her smiling guests::

     ::Grabbing her keyboard as she sliiiiiiiiiides by, she begins doing the one-finger dance to try and type a message to her friends::

     Hello!  Hello!  Hello, everyone!  I’m so glad you’re here.  I’ve been having troubles trying to find the time to write, but I am sooooo glad to have squeezed out a few minutes to be able to sit down and visit with you.  Thank you very much for being here.  I am so very happy whenever you drop by to visit.  And your comments are like a hug… thank you so much.

     Which reminds me; wasn’t that just the most fun, the other day?  Donna’s grampa’ had so many adventures.  And Donna really knows how to share those stories.  Oliver and his family will always be a part of my heart.  I’m reading the books again.  Such fun.  I do hope you have also begun reading them.  Each one is a treasure, all its own.  I know you will enjoy every single word.


     I have not had a chance to tell you about my amazing visit with Agent Mark McVeigh.  So many really amazing things have been happening, lately, that I am truly running (in my internet virtual world, actually).  I don’t know how the rest of you keep up with everything.  Any advice would seriously be appreciated.

     Mark and I talked a couple of weeks ago on Skype.  If you don’t have Skype, you don’t know what you’re missing.  It was just like sitting in my living room, talking to Mark.  The only thing missing was the hot cocoa and fresh-baked cookies.

     I was able to ask Mark many questions about the publishing process and what those most important factors are.  He was easy to talk to.  Very relaxed and easy-going.  Although Mark was very helpful in answering my questions, I never felt that he lost the sense of caring.  He was also interested in what I was doing as a writer and I can honestly say that I look forward to contacting him when my book is ready to go to market.  May I just say that if you are looking for an agent, don’t be shy about getting in touch with Mark McVeigh.  I do believe he will treat you right.

     I love blogging.  This whole experience has been much more than I ever imagined possible.  Each day seems to bring new and exciting surprises.  I surely hope you will be here to enjoy every minute of the excitement as we move forward.  And don’t forget, Donna Aviles will be back with more for us, very soon.  So, until the next time, keep a hug on.

  1. I loved my Skype chat with Mark McVeigh, too! I was so nervous and he put me right at ease. He answered all my questions as fully as he could and asked me a lot of questions, too, so he could give me the best answers possible when they concerned my wip. I agree – I'll look forward to contacting him when my book is ready, too.
