ALYSSA GOT AN AGENT!!!!! + PARANORMALCY Giveaway

She did it! 
 
Alyssa GOT AN AGENT!

In case you didn't know, Alyssa is a YA writer and has been going through the query wars to land an agent. You know, that minor (*cough cough*) person you need if you want to get your manuscript to editors and publishers. If you're an aspiring writer, you know how difficult this process is. Well her hard work has paid off and now it's official...

Alyssa is agented by the wonderful (we love her because Alyssa no longer whines about getting an agent)

Michelle Wolfson of Wolfson Literary

Michelle is also Kiersten White's agent - you know, 
that NY Times Bestselling Author of 
PARANORMALCY

Some of Alyssa's admirers said...

 

"Alyssa, Congratulations! And now that you're not so busy querying agents, will you PLEASE go out with me!" 

- Taylor Lautner



"Please be mine! I promise I'm not a douche, I just play one on TV!"

- Ian Somerhalder


"Alyssa, I know I'm older than you, but I will Sparta-Kick Taylor Lautner and Ian Stupid-halder into the Pit of Death to get to you!"  

- Gerard Butler 


For more details about THE CALL you can check out Alyssa's post on her writing blog. And you might want to visit - especially if you're a YA writer - because she's having a contest to win a one-year subscription to YALITCHAT.

In fact because we're so thankful, and it is November, the Thanksgiving Month,

WE'RE HAVING A FEAST OF GIVEAWAYS!
and 
ALYSSA'S WRITE (Alyssa's Writing blog) 
So gear up and get ready to WIN!
