When I submit a few new chapters to my critique buddies, it creates a momentary euphoria. A readership of 5.
I can't imagine what it will feel like receiving my first request for a full from an agent.
Or just having a full.
My name's Karen Akins. And my debut YA sci-fi novel LOOP is coming out October 21, 2014 with St. Martin's Press. It's all sorts of time travelly goodness. I'm a self-professed geek--also a wife to Hubbykins, a mom to the Pea and Boo, and a follower of Jesus. And, occasionally, I find time to vacuum. I'm repped by the marvelous Victoria Marini at Gelfman Schneider Literary Agency.
