Agency News:

Termination Notice:

Tamela Hancock Murray has submitted a letter of termination to Hartline Literary Agency. LLC. As of May 30th, Tamela will no longer be with Hartline.

Tamela wrote: “I will always be proud of my association with Hartline Literary Agency, and I know that the future is bright for us all.”

Joyce's response; “Tamela is a good friend and has been a valued employee. We will miss her and wish her the best in her new endeavors.”

In related activity, a number of rumors have been circulating including one that Joyce is about to retire. That is not the case, although we will try our best to get her to scale back a bit to help her in the healing process. Terry and Diana have NO intention of leaving the agency. A number of restructuring things are being discussed in the wake of all that has happened all of which are aimed at making Hartline even stronger.
As Joyce mentioned yesterday, all questions can be directed to Terry Burns or Diana Flegal.

Other News: Lisa Harris, a client of Joyce's has been named a finalist in the 2011 Christy Award Women's fiction category. Congratulations to Lisa. We are of course hoping she wins!
