A blog to mark a milestone in our Writers' Workshop
We don't usually act as literary agents, and won't do so much in the future. When we have 'agented' in the past, it's been with smaller books that are headed to smaller publishers.
More recently though, we've handled an extraordinary memoir, which we're selling by auction. We've had three bids from three major publishers, all of them very enthusiastic about the book. The wheel is still in spin, so there's no clear winner in sight yet, but it's a terrific outcome for us and for our (very happy) client. It's also been a very interesting insight into the world of the literary agent. In the meantime, I'm hoping for further bidding - and in due course, a bestselling book to boot!
I'll let y'all know.
PS: two days before publication date of my This Little Britain paperback. I was going to blog about the run up to publication, but there's been darn little to blog about. No PR. No nothing. Frustrating for an author who wants his book to sell, but there it is. It'll have to sell on the beauty of its cover alone - there's nowt else!
