In the interests of balance I have to hold my hands up here. After four agents voted mine the best adult novel in the Cornerstones competition, none of them have since offered to represent me. This was suitably gutting (there is no other word). The positive note is that the woman who ran the competition is clearly keen that I find an agent, will be meeting with more in September, and tells me she’ll be mentioning my novel to them.
Meanwhile, ever onward… (and a condoling ellipsis)
(By the way, the WordPress Links system provides suggestions of related content while you’re writing your post, and has just come up with one that starts, ‘It’s mating season for snakes in Alabama but best to leave them alone.’ Damn right.)
