Signed by Kneerim & Williams

Update: I’m no longer represented by Kneerim & Williams. When they couldn’t place Déjà Vu with a major publisher, we parted amicably.

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.
