well there IS some good news

after having an agent for a famous literary agency jerk me around for 5 months in new york, they (she) couldn’t get it together  to read the final edited chapters. let me explain. they said it needed this, and needed that and by the way could you have it professionally edited too. so i said yes, yes, yes and after great expense and time they turned it down last week unread. thats correct UNREAD. because they couldn’t, or wouldn’t read the final piece. question. why did those nitwits keep me on the line for 5 months?

answer: dunno

but here’s the good news, i have had 4 more hits on my query and i have sent them all out.

what a ridiculous process. fools work is what it is.


Hmmm – why don’t I believe them?
