I joined the Blueboards in 2010, and after four years of revising, querying, and starting over (and over and over) I'm so happy to have some good news to share:

I'm so pleased to announce I've accepted representation from Ammi-Joan Paquette of EMLA!

I feel like I've gone through this journey with all of you and I'm certain I couldn't have made it this far without all your advice, encouragement and support over the years.

You can find out a little more on my blog if you're interested: http://bethanysmith.net/2014/03/07/day-of-small-beginnings/

You guys are the best!  :grouphug2:
