This Week

Things I did this week that I loved . . .

  • Called a client to tell her we got an offer
  • Negotiated that offer
  • Called another editor to say we were accepting an offer I negotiated last week
  • Called an author to offer representation
  • Signed that author
  • Read a client’s manuscript and sent revisions
  • Read a client’s proposal and sent revisions
  • Submitted a new project
  • Posted three or four new covers on our Web site
  • Celebrated it all with chocolate chip cookies and a glass (or two) of wine

And that’s why I love my job.

Now, that's a great week, Jessica. Congratulations!

And isn't wine and cookies the best pairing ever? After brownies and single-malt, that is ;)

Joyce Tremel said...

Sounds like a great week!

Chocolate and dark beer go well together, too.

Donna Lea Simpson said...

Cookies and wine! I'd never have thought of that.

Love a great week.

Just had a chocolate chip cookie myself. My mother-in-law is known for her chocolate chip cookies. And she just brought a batch over a few days ago.

Luckily I've got kids to help me there. And neighbors. (She makes them by the dozens). Yum!

Anyway, hope you have another great week next week. :)

Wine and cookies? Really? Hmm. Interesting.

Congrats on a great week.

Sounds like an awesome week. And I hope you have an awesome weekend, too.

What did you do in your "spare" time she says smiling - that was a lot of work there.

Mira said...

This is wonderful, what a great week!

Love hearing about your successes and how much you love your work. Very heartwarming.

Hopeful, too. :)

Have a great weekend!

I love these beautifully positive posts in the pub industry. And it's such a thrill when agents love their job. Actually, it's inspiring when anyone loves their job. It's so good of you to put this in the universe today. ;)

Don't dunk your cookies in the wine and you'll be just fine. I sadly know this from experience ;)

Kidding. Glad you had such a nice, productive week!

Terry McLaughlin said...

Congratulations, Jessica and BookEnds :-)!
