In my household, when my children want to tell me about something particularly LARGE, they call it "hunormous." I'm not sure where or why they decided to meld the words "huge" and "enormous," but it seems particularly appropriate for today's post.

Sheri Larsen, as many of you know, is a fantastic blogger and all around incredible person. She's generous and thoughtful, and so of course, when she decided to celebrate getting an agent, she wanted to spread the joy.

So, first, before we kick off this whole festival of awesome, let's take a moment to congratulate Sheri! *throws confetti at Sheri* She recently accepted an offer of representation from Paula Munier of Talcott Notch Literary.

And now, let's talk about what she's put together. It's pretty phenomenal. Here's what she has to say about it:
