Baby! and Agent Achievement: Unlocked!

My greatest adventure has begun:

I am thrilled to announce the birth of Robert Alexander Lakosil!

March 1, 2015 7.5 lbs, 19 in

Obviously, I have been MIA for a bit, and will continue to be as I'm on leave learning to normalize with this little guy.


There will be more posts. Promise. :)

In the mean time, I am also thrilled to announce that I have unlocked a pretty BAMF Agent Achievement: I totally negotiated and closed a deal while in labor and in delivery.


It was a pretty fun conversation to have with the editor:

Me: Oh, sorry for the delay, I had a baby yesterday.
Editor: You had a baby yesterday?!

I can't say that all agents mark these same milestones, but to me, the Agent Achievements include first sale, first royalty payment, first released book, first auction, first pre-empt, first six figure deal, and, of course, negotiating a deal while in labor, etc.
