Exciting Stuff that happened in January

Shelly: I didn’t expect this to happen so soon but I have an agent! I’ve been working with Celeste on a few things and we are now both represented by Brooks Sherman of The Bent Agency! Yay!

Blogbound also officially announced some of their details and I’ll be speaking there! It’s happening on May 31, 2017 so if you’re in NYC or will be visiting for BEA, you can see me there. Link here.

Other than that, not much? Although those things are very exciting.

Angie: I saw Hamilton!!!! And okay that was on like, January 2nd, but really January was exceptionally boring other than the bits of it I spent in NYC and if you would like to look at pics from my AMAZING trip, you can see them all HERE
