Another Full request for COLD arrived today, from the 100% excellent agent who offered me some terribly constructive criticism along with a rejection on my first fifty pages way back in… (checks gmail) late March. After I’d taken the criticism on board and received a few more requests, I decided to write the agent and offer him another look at the first 50 along with my thanks for the critique. His request for the full arrived this morning.
So I guess that means ‘no’ doesn’t always mean ‘no’. Which feels like the tagline for the new Rohypnol ad campaign, but whatever.
So, three fulls out in the big wide world now (hence the Stooges) along with four partials. Strangely enough, the trend continues: every agent who has requested a full is a male. Conspiracy? Coincidence? Cracky-talk?
Finished the Wind-up Girl finally. Writing style was 100% great, just absolutely loved his words. The story was… I’m not really sure tbh. Kinda in two minds about it. But was it better than 99% of the shit I read? Hell yes.
