If I snag an Agent

You read the post right. If I snag an Agent.

Karen Hooper and I are in the querying trenches together right now and decided it'd be fun to add a little fun to the possiblity of being agented.

Her and I will get to meet each other in November when I make a trip to the Wizarding World and we've decided that if we are both agented by then we will do something nutty (not unusual for me, I know). Her and I have become fabulous online friends and now we'll be making the real life relationship as well!!

What's fun about this is that you, the reader, will get to decide what crazy stunt we do!!

Here are the options:

1. Disney fun: Dancing around disney like nutjobs (complete with costumes - or at least some Mickey Mouse ears).
2. Dancing down the street to The Dog Days Are Over (Yes, Karen and I will be hand in hand with my hubby graciously taping the whole thing - most likely unwillingly).
3. Going to Writer's Stop making our own books and pretending to sell them to strangers (this one I think it an amazing idea).
4. Other ideas.

Now I would love to hear your thoughts on what you are rooting for to win in the comment section! On top of that there is a poll on my sidebar, could you pretty please (with sugar on top) go and select the option you most want so it's counted! Let's get some good numbers people... it's going to be Epic!

If you have another suggestion provide it in the comment sections and as the months progress I'll add it to the poll to be considered!

SO again, if Karen and I reach our goal of agenthood come November we will do some crazy stuff!!

LOL wow, I love #3 and I can totally you guys getting some serious laughs. Adorable, energetic girls making fake books? You might actually sell some LOL! And FYI. . . not "If I snag an agent", it should read "When I snag an agent."

Emily White said...

#3! #3! Hehehe! Now where is this poll of which you speak? Hmmm...I'm looking...I'm looking...nothing. Oh dear. I must not blog before I've had my morning tea.

Laura Pauling said...

I'm all for watching you guys dance around at Disney! :)

salarsenッ said...

Dancing the dog days being over sounds perfect!! Video....

Trisha Leaver said...

Dancing around Disney could be a blast, but I am going with Number 3 -- Fake books. No matter which one you choose, You need to tape it so we can all see your well deserved excitement.

Vicki Rocho said...

Love the idea, I just need a moment to come up with something even zanier. LOL.

Melissa said...

That's so awesome that you and Karen are going to get to meet! Hopefully you both get an agent so we can all get some laughs. :)

J. L. Jackson said...

Get matching tattoos with your agents name on them. Lol all right, the dress up dancing thing is good, too. Or you can both do the sky coaster in old town. That would be video worthy. Lol

Sarah said...

This is a great idea, and I'm rooting hard for option 2, but they're all great. Here's to making fools of yourselves for an awesome reason!

Jessica Bell said...

haha. Sounds like fun! Well, I might have to come back when I think of something a little crazier! :o)

Samantha Vérant said...

Could you combine 1 and 3? Please??/

Anne Gallagher said...

I'm thinking Disney. Instead of mouse ears how about a duck bill? Donald? Daisy? With pink painted lips?

Damyanti said...

Number 3, for sure :)

And I can see you both selling away already!

Em-Musing said...

Oh, dancing in the street for sure!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Whatever you decide to do, be sure to post the video of the aftermath!

Anne N Kenny said...

It's between 3 and 4 for me. I can't decide!

Carrie said...

I think seeing the video for #2 would be fun.

Talli Roland said...

I'm gonna go for number three! That was be hilarious, Jen. :)

Samantha Sotto-Yambao said...

I'll be visiting Wizarding World next week - I'll let you know if anything crazy comes to mind :)

Nicole Zoltack said...

I think 2 and 3 are awesome! I definitely wanna see whatever you end up doing!

Jennifer Hoffine said...

I love number three also...it has the benefit of getting you ready for your next steps into the publishing world.

Jennifer Hoffine said...

Oh, and you should definitely print up business cards to put in your books. If anyone buys them, they could end up worth something someday.

I'd put a wild fancy dress costume on and have fun watching people gawk. (If you wear shades no one ever realises you can see them staring at you.)
