And then. And then. And then ... an agent!

Ever since this afternoon, I've had great news to share. But first, I had to drive back from Dallas, following a full-day elementary school visit (more details to come). Then I had to attended a small group meeting with church members. Then I had to listen as my son read a book to me. Then I had to read off a long list of groceries to my wife who called from her cell phone while at the store. Then I had to wait for Blogger to act right.

So now, I finally I get to share my news: I have an agent. A licensing agent. An art agent. And now ... drum roll please ... a literary agent!

Sara Crowe of Harvey Klinger, Inc. She called while I was on the highway returning from Dallas. She likes my stories! Says they're well written. Funny. She was so enthusiastic. Wow! What a day I've had.

Wow -- with all those agents, if you're not careful, you're going to have to spend your time creating!

Congrats, Don!
