Serendipitously Schubert!

Well...Serendipity implies the "luck of the draw", but "hard working" didn't really work with Debra's name. :) What I meant to say was, "The fabulous, serendipitous, AND hard working Debra Schubert has a literary agent!!!!".
These are pics of Debra signing with...
Ms. Bernadette Baker-Baughman of Baker's Mark Literary Agency after Ms. B liked a comment Debra made on Twitter about queries and then looked at Debra's blog. She discovered Debra had queried a while back with her novel, MURDER ON TWILIGHT CIRCLE. She invited Debra to re-query and the rest is history! Magic, Happy Dance, Sugar Plum History!
And yes, Twi-hards-She lives on Twilight Circle-real street name.
*tear* Mama Bear is SO proud!
CLICK HERE to read more about it and to view the actual e-mail Ms. B sent to Debra! :)

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DID THIS!!! Seriously, you are so mega-uber-sparkly awesome that I don't know where to begin. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all your support, chocolate, and Katy Perry pics. On so many levels, "we are one."

Merry, happy holidays to you and your family. You freaking ROCK!!!

I hooked up with Debra at BEANY, just two bloggers meeting up walking, talking and pitching and I was so glad to do it with someone like her. She is so amazing, so positive, funny, and a phenomenal writer. So glad to see your post on her success!

I love Deb's story! She's a friend of mine and this is such a great example of why it's important to be "sharp" in all venues -- blog, Twitter, etc. -- because you never know who might be reading them!

Sorry to spoil your round number. Now you've got 101 followers. Brilliant news about the signing, and especially the fact that you were invited to re-query!

Deb-
I'm so excited for you! I know u know this already, but I've always felt certain you'd be picked up...I even feel more positive of your publishing prospects than my own. It's strange, and I have no idea why really. I've never felt that way about any other writer's work...maybe I'm psychic. :)

And yeah-I love the round number too! Now I need 200! :)
Hope ur Christmas is going amazing! I made cookies with cousins today and it was magic! :)

jdcoughlin-
She is very incredible! There are so many blogs out there floating in cyber space-I'm glad I found my way into her world. A VERY fun rabbit hole to fall into indeed! :)
And-Thanks for coming by! I'll be over to check out ur space!

Daisy-
So true! I actually started a blog for the simple reason that one day- if I ever get published-I'd like to have a record of my journey and the days I spent getting there for other writers to see and for readers to have fun with. I've always loved bios on authors and how their lives play into what they write. Thanks for chillin here for a bit to celebrate Deb! I'm comin to check out ur blog very soon! :)

GreenGirl-

Chuck-
I can get u this lady's number! She's a quick texter like Tiger Woods! :) AHAHA!
Seriously tho- Thanks for coming by! U have an incredibly talented wife!!
AND- I've always wanted to tell u look SO much like a poet I know-Dr. James Ulmer. He also teaches at Houston Baptist University. The first time I saw ur pic, I thought Deb was married to him! :) U may just have an unknown twin out there! I wish I had a pic of him, but I can't find one-Here is the link to his university profile if u want to see it tho!
