In the Mail

From the assistant to the literary agent I sent a query to a couple months ago:
Thank you for your query concerning your novel FOBS AND FOES. Your work sounds interesting and I would be happy to read some of it. Please send the first 50 pages of the novel, plus a brief synopsis...

This is still about twelve huge steps removed from actually getting the book published, mind you, but it's a step closer than I've ever gotten in the past.

If you're one of the people I've been ignoring this weekend, it's because I'm working on making those 50 pages and synopsis as pretty as they can be.

Congratulations! Hope it goes well.

Congrats. What's the novel about?

Scot said...

Good luck, and much congratulations!

I hope to be able to someday say "I knew him when" (and then sell, for a reasonable amount, the aforementioned picture of you in girly clothes that your brother, no doubt, is about to send my way.)

Mr. Fob said...

Thank you, thank you, and thank you. The novel is mostly about fobs, but also a little about foes. It's the first book in my Rowlingesque epic superhero series.

Scot, would it ruin your plans if I dressed in girly clothes and posted the pictures myself?

Wow! I haven't been reading lately (due to the move), and look at all I've missed! Congratulations! First this and then fame! Wow!

Thanks, TK!
