I just read the bio of one of the agents I will meet at one of the three writers conferences I will attend in the next 6 weeks (Bravery? Masochism? Too much time on my hands?). He loves books with smart, quirky, young heroines and mysterious twists. Going by his photo he is also very young and very sweet. Makes me want to bring him a mug of coffee and a plate of cookies. If he doesn’t like my book, NO COOKIES.
Does it mean anything that the greatest number of views on my blog for the last month had the word ‘Crises’ or ‘Annoying’ in the heading? Perhaps I should go back to ‘Dominos’ and ‘Sexy.’
Going to be critiqued by an actual editor from an actual publishing house at an actual conference 10/25. Hoping at least to hear ‘salvageable.’ If I don’t, I will tell you my car broke down on the Dulles Toll Road and I never made it. I will take a selfie of me weeping copiously, nearly prostrate on the ground next to the driver’s side door. This will keep you from seeing that I’m parked in front of my house. The weeping will be genuine, though.
