Amy Collins and Talcott Notch Literary Agency is pleased to announce the representation of Devrie Donalson
MILFORD, CT, March 01, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — TikTok star and social media storyteller, Devrie Donalson, is best known for her snappy, relatable, feminist-toned humor.
She is currently working on a novel and a non-fiction inspirational book that rethinks what it means and how it feels to be alone. Donalson has a huge online following who appreciates her humor and honest outtakes of her life and life choices.
On the eve of her 30th birthday, Donalson quit her job as a florist and flew to Scotland without much of a plan but the intention to live a life she could be proud of. There she found a new wave of people all over the world who resonated with the impulse to fly somewhere and find something new, and who have committed to following along. She has been interviewed by BBC, and her travels have been covered by dozens of news outlets in the UK.
Amy Collins stumbled upon Devrie’s TikTok page at https://www.tiktok.com/@devriebrynn and after watching her following grow, reached out to ask if she had any publishing aspirations.
Coincidently, Donalson had mentioned in her first TikTok video that she was working on the great American novel. In the months that followed that initial video, Devrie has grown to over 500,000 followers and has over 15 Million likes. She’s currently staying and writing in Edinburgh, Scotland.
“What attracted me to Devrie was how honest and real she was.” Said Amy Collins. “I was curious if her amazing voice and personality translated to the page. Some social media stars are wonderful storytellers, but not great writers; Devrie is both. I asked her to send me a sample of her work and I was thrilled to see that Devrie had enormous talent. She is so clever and precise, and can shape a message and a line beautifully. People are going to love how they feel when they read her work. I am so excited to work with her on her first book.”
Devrie has a slightly different memory of the meeting. “About a month before Amy reached out to me, I told my ceiling, aka The Universe, quite sternly, ‘Okay. I’m going to try to be a writer. It’s now or never.’ Then I proceeded to only work on sad poems sporadically while I ate cheese in my bed and told no one. When Amy DM’d me, I practically fell out of my chair. ‘I’m a witch.’ I thought. (Probably not true, but I’m still not sure.) After a single meeting with Amy, I knew in that place that knows things that this was going to happen, and it was going to be very, very good. I feel like I’m finally exactly where I’m supposed to be, and I hope that writing from this authentic place will resonate with all the wonderful people who already find joy in my shenanigans. I hope it will bring people peace, freedom, forgiveness, and some long-lost fun.”
Devrie Donalson is currently working on her non-fiction inspirational book which will be sent to publishers in early April.
