Author Mentor Match is a mentorship program that pairs unagented MA/YA writers with agented, experienced authors.
I submitted MAGIC, my MG light fantasy, almost as soon as applications opened. And a few days later, I received a request for the full! I did another round of revisions, sent it out, and crossed my fingers.
It was a nerve-wracking month. I kept checking Twitter for updates and teasers.
I may or may not have overanalyzed the teasers.
When I heard that the AMM announcement might get released early, I was super excited!
That day, I was running around town and had tossed my phone in my bag. When I checked it, I realized my phone was still on and had randomly started opening up tweets for me... And I found the greatest news in the first tweet I saw:
I'm SUPER happy to announce that I was picked by Sean Easley!
