Mr. Agent has been very busy doing deals for his clients, yay him!
Finally, he emailed me to suggest we arrange a catch-up session. I was planning to be in London anyway for a thing at the Oratory so we decided to meet yesterday.
First good news - he loved the sample of the new novel I'm writing. Not the plot-less character story - I've shelved that until I think up a cure. This is another story; essentially an escape-and-chase story. Gosh I love those, so I thought I'd try to write one. Working title is 'Jaguar's Realm'. After a week of so drafting a trial plot, I started to write. It was fun - I didn't have to wring out every page, as with the coming-of-age character story!
We discussed Mr. Agent's criticisms. There were many! It's back to the plotting for me.
Second good news. "We're starting to see some interest from publishers in 'The Joshua Files'. No offers, but interest."
Now you're talking, pal.
