Several months ago, I received some encouraging words regarding Auralia’s Colors from fantasy-lit enthusiast Colleen Lindsay, otherwise known as La Gringa, who blogs at The Swivet.

That prompted me to contact her, and I’ve enjoyed our correspondence ever since. Previously, she was director of publicity at Del Rey. Working at Doubleday, she contributed to the success of the book Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light.

I bring this up because Lindsay’s just taken an exciting step in her career, and deserves big congratulations. She’s become a literary agent! If you’re writing mainstream fantasy, take note! She’ll be focusing on science fiction, fantasy, and graphic novels. (Her blog announcement is here, and the news is reported at MediaBistro here.)

Best wishes, Colleen!
