Just heard on another loop that agent Nadia Cornier is leaving The Creative MediaAgency and starting her own agency, the Firebrand Agency. CMA is a well-respected agency, so that's interesting news. I hear Nadia has been making quite a few sales herself. I was scheduled to pitch to one of her collegues at CMA in Reno, Lisa VanAuken, but since she'd already very nicely turned down my Golden Heart manuscript, didn't seem to be any point. Paige Wheeler, CMA agency head, is Linda O. Johnston's agent (Linda is one of the sweetest and most helpful ladies I know, and author of a great new mystery series featuring a crime-fighting pet-sitter).
