IT'S AGENT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What? You’ve never heard of Agent Day??? That’s because it’s made up and brand new, the brainchild of fellow Tenner, and 18 year old wunderkind, Kody Keplinger. (To see the entire list of who’s participating in Agent Day, check out this kickass list over at Lisa and Laura’s place!)

Okay, so here’s the deal…

Writers need agents. I’ve talked about this before, you know how I feel. And Kody has decided there should be a day in which we thank those agents who tirelessly represent us.

And today is that day!!!

But instead of going on and on about all the cool things my agent has done for me (which she totally has!), I’m gonna tell you about something else she’s done.

First, meet my agent:

Laura Rennert of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency (aka. Super Agent)

And this is Laura’s book:

Buying, Training, and Caring for Your Dinosaur by Laura Rennert (aka. Super Agent)

That’s right! Not only is she an agent, she’s an author as well! And not only is Buying, Training, and Caring for Your Dinosaur a really great picture book…it’s a really great Christmas present for those kids on your Christmas list!

So, let’s take another look at that:

Super Agent = Author = Great Book! = Christmas shopping done = More time with your family!!!

Wow, see how that happened? My agent can pretty much *save* your holidays!

Oh, and check out her dog, Lola:

How could I NOT end a post with a dog in a dino costume?

Happy Agent Day, Laura!!!

Hey guys! Thanks for stopping by to celebrate Agent Day w/me! If I've been slow to respond lately it's because revisions are *eating* my brain, but I'm reading all of your comments!!! :)

Oh, and I agree...isn't the Chihuahuasauraus frakking adorable???

Looks like a wonderful book! Makes me wish I was still the librarian doing Preschool story times @ my local library. That is a book I would definitely share. Gah!
