My Fabulous Agent

Now that I've signed the agency agreement, I can tell you who my agent is. It is the fabulous Kristin Nelson. She runs a very entertaining blog about writing called Pub Rants.

Although this is the same agent Sara has, I didn't land the agent through her. We write under different last names, so my slush pile submissions don't even have the same name. However, my wife still gets the credit, because she kept bugging me to keep submitting. For years.

Kristin still hasn't read SotBL yet. Apparently she has, like, other clients and stuff. Go figure.

In other news, I finished the first draft of GTiS. Now I just have to go over it one more time, from top to bottom. I'll get through that pretty quickly since I got laid off today. For the second time.

Not that I care. As you may have deduced from the change in blog title, Something Is Afoot. Big Plans are in Motion. Stay tuned, loyal Bat-fans!


  1. That's too bad about the lay off :( But I wouldnt fret. Kristin Reps amazing novels, so if she chose to rep yours, it's no doubt amazing. I hope you find a publisher quickly, if your wife is right, and you are a better writer than she is, you'll be a force to be reckoned with (because her novel was amazing).

  2. I am very excited about Kristin selling my book, but I must confess... I make a lot more money working as an engineer than my wife does writing.

    Of course, that's when I'm working. I picked a bad time to switch over to the Defense industry! :D

    It doesn't actually matter, though. We've got other plans.
