I have some good news…

And by good news, I mean FUCKING AWESOME NEWS.

(By the way, please click on the bot­tom of this blog post if you’re read­ing this on GoodReads…for some rea­son the gifs don’t show up on there and you really need the sweet sweet gifs for this one)

Last week, just out of the blue, I was emailed by Scott Wax­man of the Wax­man Leavel Lit­er­ary Agency. He con­grat­u­lated me on my suc­cess (whut?) and said he’d like to do busi­ness with me.

Cue this emotion:

Then, think­ing it was too good to be true, I did some research on him to make sure he’s legit. Turns out, his agency has pub­lished such awe­some titles as:

–Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

–The Hex Hall Series

–Girls of Fire and Thorns

- Deadly Cool

- Defi­ance

- Hourglass/Timpeice

- Angel Eyes

- Shit My Dad Says

And he rep­re­sents Mar­tin Sheen.…MR. PRESIDENT!!

So then my emo­tion was:

Any­hoo, I’m pleased to announce to you that I, Karina Halle, am now rep­re­sented by Scott Wax­man of the Wax­man Leavel Lit­er­ary Agency. It’s funny because when I wrote the Exper­i­ment in Ter­ror Series, I never queried any agents or publishers…I just wanted to self-pub (some­thing to do with impa­tience lol). So the fact that I now have one? WOW.…

Actu­ally, WOW isn’t good enough. This is how I’m feeling:

    You go, girl! They were smart to pick you up!

    Hurry, hurry with your new books. I’m on my third read of the EIT books, and just wait­ing for the next one. After try­ing to find some oth­ers as good, none of them grabbed me like your books do!

    I def­i­nitely think there should be a movie of this series! Maybe all of them!

    Good for you. Yours are some of the few decent self pub titles I’ve read — indeed am still read­ing — that are well done (and not full of gram­mar and spelling issues, major kudos). Perry’s char­ac­ter is very well realised, I love that she is so ‘real and nor­mal’ despite her ‘gifts’, and your dia­logue isn’t forced either. Yes, I have reviewed some of your titles (favor­ably) on Ama­zon and I’m hon­estly quite hard to impress lol.

  7. Hi Ms. Halle! I learned about your books in a list (Best Indie YA/New Adult Books) on Goodreads. They are actu­ally at the top ten and being the curi­ous reader we all are, I read the sum­mary in Goodreads and I am like ‘Ok, Why didn’t I come across of this before?! Why just now?! ’ I thought the plot is excit­ing and I’m so excited to read your first book!! SQUEE. Then I got to your blog and read this post, CONGRATULATIONS! OMG! They’re the ones who pub­lished the hex hall series? COME ON! BIG TIME! You are so blessed, 2012 must be your year :)
