Kendric, I’ll say this for you: you know how to write a provocative subject line! Maybe that also bodes well for your manuscript. But if a good-news message is the scariest thing you ever see in print, then you will be leading a charmed life. Good luck.
(PS: your agent may greatly prefer that you keep quiet about any deal in progress, rather than announcing it in a forum.)
This is a little stuff shirted isn’t it? All he said was “OH CRAP! THEY GOT BACK TO ME”. If he said “Agent Q at address blah decided that the wanted to read the next 3 chapters of my unpublished work One life spent annoying Druid” or disclosed some other info, then yeah. Bad move. Which I guess kind of agrees with you in advising K to be very careful what is posted about the deal.
Ah Jaysen, here we are back to our usual personas. Me shirt, you headless.
What I think you really miss are vic, molly, & sarah to play with.
Long, long ago (2007) we had an amazing character from Montreal called Eiron who wrote the funniest and also most curmudgeonly posts, but then he (I say “he” cautiously) said he was going into production on a play, and he vanished. Maybe he’s still lurking here; I do hope he’s OK and I certainly miss his voice and rollicking diatribes.
I do not understand vic’s mostly silence. I sent IMs to him and you and never got a response.
Heartiest congratulations and the very best of luck with the rest of the project.
Messrs Jaysen and Droo,
Having to share the same Writers room with him, even if not the same keyboard now, I cant for the life of me, imagine why on earth you would want more vic-k participation on the forums. I would`ve thought, gentlemen, that counting your blessing was the order of the day.
Do take care,
And that’s that. It’s why I thought this was the scariest thing I’ve seen in print. It left me waiting for this:
Though I enjoyed reading your material, on further reflection I’ve too many hesitations about the market for this to pursue. Sorry to disappoint you, but I do wish the best of luck finding an agent with a firmer foothold in fantasy.
