Signed by Kneerim & Williams

Well, spin my nipple nuts and send me to Alaska if it’s been almost two weeks since I signed with the Kneerim & Williams lit­er­ary agency. What? Me? A lit­er­ary agent? With my repu­ta­tion for going-it-alonery?

But I am two-and-twenty, gentle reader.

What happened was: Just prior to Christmas, I found myself cor­res­pond­ing with a UK pub­lisher about Déjà Vu. He loved the book, which was hur­ray. But he thought that there was no mar­ket left in the UK, which was boo.

Like the Spanish, I decided to approach the New World.

Given that life is short, I con­tac­ted rather more lit­er­ary agen­cies than I should have; within a few hours I had received one or two offers of rep­res­ent­a­tion and sev­eral more requests for the manu­scripts of Déjà Vu, Flashback and The Amber Rooms.

By the end of the week, I had taken two phone calls — one with each of the agen­cies I wanted most — and was won over by Katherine Flynn and Ike Williams.

So it’s with Kneerim & Williams that I’ll be rest­ing my hat. Katherine will be get­ting back to me with edit­or­ial notes on Déjà Vu quite soon, and we’ll take it from there.

Terribly.

Terribly exicted.
