Agents: Still Searching

Agent HuntLet’s get this out-of-the-way.  I’m not delusional.  I never thought this would be easy, but seriously.

Recently, I stumbled across an agent’s blog.  As I read, I found myself linking to various posts, printing a few out to guide rewrites and just generally fan girling all over the place.  Fan-girl is a strange state for me.  Even if I meet someone whose books I adore, I do not fan girl.  It just isn’t me.  But maybe that explains it all.  I just wasn’t in my right mind.

Clearly, I had found the agent for me.  It couldn’t have been more obvious.

Fortunately, the voice of reason managed to get a word in edge-wise.  “Request some of her books.  Be sure.”

Pfft.  Sure, schmure.  We’re soul mates I tell you.

But the voice of reason one and I requested four of her books.  I read book one and thought . . . I don’t get it.  I read book two and thought . . . cute.  Cute is a huge warning sign for me.  I’m not a cute kind of person.  Unless you count calavera as cute.  And not Hello Kitty.  Real south of the border calavera.  If you think they’re cute, then I’m adorable.  But I soldiered on.  Last night I read book four.  The book Kirkus called hilarious.  I nearly cried.  No, I wasn’t laughing that hard.  It just wasn’t my somewhat off beat, gross, 12-year-old boy type of humor.

I’ve met this agent.  We laugh at many of the same things and get along well.  I suspect we’d make descent friends.  But we don’t like the same books.  She likes cute.  I like calavera, but at least I figured it out for myself.

  1. YOU have the best kind of humor! Hello Kitty is actually scary. Not cute at all. Think what might happen when you find Hello Kitty in and alley eating out of a dumpster…

    • So did not think you were going to write “eating OUT OF A DUMPSTER.” Yes, I’ve been watching Walking Dead. Why do you ask?
