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
- 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.
LOVE IT! congrats! I love the series,the only problem is waiting for the next one.
This is awesome! Congrats Karina! Go girl!

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
