Kat Zhang has some exciting news!

8 Sep


I’m so thrilled to tell you guys about this–I’ve recently signed with the lovely Emmanuelle Morgen of Judith Ehrlich Literary Management. My excitement level is way too high to be contained in one post, so I’m going to direct you to my blog if you’re interested in the long version of things.

The condensed version goes a little something like this: Emmanuelle offered me representation a little more than a week ago (I missed the call…haha), and since I had a number of fulls and partials still out with various agents, she agreed to wait until this week for my final decision. During that time, I received a second offer from another wonderful agent, but I ultimately fell in love with the shared vision Emmanuelle and I had for HYBRID (and Emmanuelle herself!), and decided to sign with her.

Now it’s on to more revisions πŸ˜› Yay!

Thank you all for reading and following and being generally awesome!! And of course, a HUGE thank you to the rest of the LTWF team. They are the absolute best, and I’m so proud to know each and every one of them πŸ™‚

All my best,

Kat Zhang

    Btw! Just discovered that your agent also reps Jenny Brown! She was a fellow authonomy (a member of authonomy.com). What a pleasant coincidence lol
