So. I have some news.

I can’t believe I’m actually making this post, but I have a literary agent! I’ve signed with Rubin Pfeffer of East/West Literary Agency

See! Here I am signing the contract (with my trusty Peeps pen)!

And then I drank champagne out of a can with a straw because I’m nothing if not classy.

So that’s my news! I’ll tell the full story of how I met Rubin next week, after I get a chance to recover from this “Holy crap, this actually happened” high. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    Hello group member. -waves-

    First, congratulations are in order. ^^ May your book sell billions.

    Recently, I had an idea. It involves us getting to know one another better. Through the month of April, I would like to post interviews with each of our group members. Of course, you do not have to participate but if you would like to, please email me ( with the following questions answered.

    Thank you,
    Brooke R. Busse

    1. In your fantasy works, do you often make up completely new worlds or interweave your ideas into the existing world?
    2. Do you have any projects outside of YA fantasy?
    3. Where do you sit when writing? Do you use the computer or regular old pen and paper?
    4. What is/are your favorite blog(s) outside of the group?
    5. What is your favorite fantasy creature (elf, dwarf, werewolf, etc.)?
