This Week

  • By: Jessica Faust | Date: Apr 16 2010

Things I did this week that I loved . . .

  • Called a client to tell her we got an offer
  • Negotiated that offer
  • Called another editor to say we were accepting an offer I negotiated last week
  • Called an author to offer representation
  • Signed that author
  • Read a client’s manuscript and sent revisions
  • Read a client’s proposal and sent revisions
  • Submitted a new project
  • Posted three or four new covers on our Web site
  • Celebrated it all with chocolate chip cookies and a glass (or two) of wine

And that’s why I love my job.

    Now, that's a great week, Jessica. Congratulations!

    And isn't wine and cookies the best pairing ever? After brownies and single-malt, that is 😉

    Chocolate and dark beer go well together, too.

  3. Cookies and wine! I'd never have thought of that.

  6. What did you do in your "spare" time she says smiling – that was a lot of work there.

    I love these beautifully positive posts in the pub industry. And it's such a thrill when agents love their job. Actually, it's inspiring when anyone loves their job. It's so good of you to put this in the universe today. 😉

    Love a great week.

    Just had a chocolate chip cookie myself. My mother-in-law is known for her chocolate chip cookies. And she just brought a batch over a few days ago.

    Luckily I've got kids to help me there. And neighbors. (She makes them by the dozens). Yum!

    Anyway, hope you have another great week next week. 🙂

  12. Don't dunk your cookies in the wine and you'll be just fine. I sadly know this from experience 😉

    Kidding. Glad you had such a nice, productive week!

  13. Congratulations, Jessica and BookEnds :-)!

  14. sounds like a productive week! Enjoy a good ol' rest.
