Crazy Cool Pitch Update

By Posted in - Randomness on July 15th, 2009 14 Comments


I just got an e-mail update from Laura saying the edited pitch I’ve posted here is “excellent – very nicely compressed and made more urgent.” So there you have it, straight from the agent’s mouth. Oh, and the other cool thing she said was that she has editors interested now “so all we need is the ms”…

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Not very literary, I know, but it’s the only word that fits the way I feel!

The thing that really got me going was the “s” on the end of “editors”. I doubt she’ll tell me which editors are interested, and even if she did I wouldn’t be able to post it here, but watch this space! I have a feeling everything’s going to turn out just fine. And heaven knows, in this economy, with the publishing industry hurting like it is, we can use all the hope there is.

Oh, and the polar bear in Parliament Square? Proves that stranger things have happened than a penniless English divorcee publishing a book. 😉

If you like the sound of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency, they’ve just created a Facebook fan page, so scurry over and add yourself to their fans for updates on opportunities to get to know them better!

    How wonderful! I picked up on that, too. Editors, plural. As in more than one! Your story may just be what this world needs to pull itself out of the doldrums. Head down, keep writing, girl. It's the only thing that will keep you sane right now.

    Hey, I love you right back, Fred! And believe me, I'm too tired to celebrate. There's nothing to celebrate till they offer for the completed ms. Working round the clock. How are you?
