I heard from my agent today that he's going to "semi-retire." What this means is that he'll continue to work with my backlist but that he won't be handling any new projects.
I'm not exactly sure what effect this will have on my future in the writing game. I turned in a book on November 1, and I have one book left to write on a two-book contract with St. Martin's, so of course I'll do that one. After that, it's anybody's guess. I've had a good run, and maybe this is a sign I should hang up the old keyboard. I hate the thought of having to find a new agent and start all over again. I have several little projects I'd like to find representation for, but I'm feeling pretty ignorant and apathetic about what will happen, as in "I don't know and I don't care."
Sadly, my agent didn't mention Lindsay Lohan's nipples.
