Literary Agent Crush

My new crushes are keeping me writing until my eyes blur. I have 4 projects I'm working on. Not that I've ever tried it, but I would not Ritalin away this ADHD creativity.

I'm still coming down after pulling together my first conference for The Society of Children Book Writers And Illustrators in Alaska. We brought up Deborah Warren and Rubin Pfeffer of East West Literary Agency. These two are giants (in the industry) with hearts. And they've stolen mine. They treated everyone at the conference with respect, talking with attendees at lunch, in between workshops, and into the evening.

After the conference, they and their spouses were headed off to explore Alaska. I felt like I was saying goodbye to good friends. And I suppose I was! I hope we stay in touch...and that they like my manuscript. I'd love love love to have a mutually successful (business) relationship with these two.
