I am so excited: I signed with literary agent Jennifer Wills at the Seymour Agency! (beaming) I am not just excited about getting an agent, I am excited about getting to work with HER!

Getting the right agent for you is important, and I really clicked with Jennifer. I felt so comfortable with and good about her. She loves and is excited about my new manuscript (and my other books), is warm, smart, and funny. She’s also kind, honest, and responsive, gives editorial feedback, likes dark and edgy books like mine, and loves diversity including #LGBTQIA characters. I really connected with her and am so excited to work with her! 
I know many of you are waiting for a new book of mine to come out, and this is one step closer to that happening. A literary agent can get a writer’s book into publishers that a writer can’t get into on their own. But the publishing industry is slow, and the next step is for Jennifer to give me editorial feedback, then I edit and give it back to her, then we’ll see if there are more edits to do, and that’s all before she even sends the manuscript out to editors at publishing houses. So it may be a while. But know that I am working on it, and if you love SCARS I think you are going to love this new book.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
