The agent-hunt looks up

My (very desultory) search for an agent, which had petered out altogether following the rejection of book no. 3, has had a bit of a boost, as I've just sent the opening chapters of my new WIP to an agent someone recommended, and she likes it very much. As the said WIP is in its early stages, and I've no idea how it's going to end/turn out, I'm not getting too excited, but it's good to know that someone likes it. Now maybe I'll stop wasting time on my own and other people's blogs and try to get down to some serious writing...


  1. Ooh! How cool, Frances! Good luck.

  2. That's good news, Frances - and you're due some, too!

  3. Thanks, guys. The good thing about this woman is that she knows that the WIP is only about 20,000 words long so far, but is still prepared to consider me. Most of them seem to want a completed novel, or at the very least, a snynopsis (there isn't one, as I tend to make it up as I go along).
