no take backs

so i have a work bio now. because I'm legit. or I try to be. and you can visit the website here and gawk at how official i am. or just read on. 

because it goes a little something like this:

Shelby Boyer joined the agency in 2014 working as an assistant to Stephanie Rostan and Jim Levine. After a life spent rambling about the perks of being a part of the Harry Potter Generation and discussing the finer points of Jurassic Park, she now considers her job her favorite thing to talk about.

That, or where one can find the greatest doughnuts in the city. (answer: dough)

A Midwest transplant, Shelby grew up in a small town always dreaming of bigger things—and better food. With a penchant for overanalyzing every book her parents ever bought her and a pesky habit of editing friends’ late-night texts, she set her sights on a career in publishing. After earning a degree in English and editing, she bought a one-way ticket to New York, bullying her way into internships and interviews until she got her chance at Levine Greenberg. Now happily settled, she relishes calling herself a New Yorker, eating pizza like one, and posting fancy pictures on Instagram to make everyone back home jealous.

Her reading habits include old favorites (John Green, Gillian Flynn, and Michael Crichton especially) and plenty of room for new obsessions. But when not reading, Shelby is usually indulging her sweet tooth with a fancy cupcake or oversized cookie or listening to bands floating somewhere between hipster and mainstream.

there you have it! so it's official. and remember folks, you heard it here first: we are now the Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary Agency. if you're at all observant you'll know that this means, most importantly, that I am assisting not one but two principals. because i'm that good.

also important: this announcement (of the name change - congrats, Steph!) means i finally have  business cards with my name on them. i'm considering mailing these to everyone i've ever known (part of a plan I have called "Mission #suckit"). but that can come later. right now, i will relish in my employment being legitimized with my oh-so-serious bio.

what can i say? i'm a regular working girl--erm, woman. just keeping it real.
