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.
