Signing With Literary Agent Cynthia Ruchti

Posted by on Oct 25, 2022 in Uncategorized | 4 comments

In my recent Instagram post sharing highlights from the Florida Christian Writers Conference, I hinted at some special news…

Well… papers have been signed, and I can finally share it! After eleven years of pursuing the call to write…

I have officially signed with literary agent Cynthia Ruchti of Books & Such Literary Management!!! <3 <3 <3

Cynthia and me at the Florida Christian Writers Conference—the same day she offered me representation. Ahhhh! What a dream!

Books & Such Literary Management is a top-tier agency that I have followed and admired for many years. They represent tons of my favorite authors, and Cynthia Ruchti, in particular, represents some authors I love very much.

I’ve gotten to know Cynthia some over the years through online groups and classes and at reader events (Did I mention she’s a multi-award-winning author in addition to being an agent? Well, she is!). I really like her. She is not only professional and savvy and smart, but she is caring. <3 And I’m not the only one who says that about her. (She recently won Agent of the Year at the 2022 American Christian Fiction Writers annual conference.)

When I saw that she was going to be at the Florida conference, I knew I wanted to meet with her, and I wondered what doors God might open.

And oh, my goodness, God definitely blessed me big time!

Cynthia liked my book. She invited me to send a proposal. And then the next morning she officially offered representation. Ahhhhhh!!!!

What a blessing it is to partner with Cynthia Ruchti and to be part of the Books & Such Literary Management agency. <3

Thanks for sharing in my joy.
