In the spirit of bringing cheer in these dark times, I can now tell you that after a very rapid response to my initial enquiry, a very nice agent from the Andrew Nurnberg agency has offered representation!
This is for the novel some know as Doris, now called Saving Grace, originating from Ath’s Winter comp 2017 – I reckon I owe you a drink, Ath!
Just goes to show you should never underestimate the power of a short story challenge.
I can’t tell you how delighted I am to hear this, @janette! SO well deserved! I love that short story and look forward to reading the full length version. congratulations and crack out the bubbly (I’m sure you already have) xx
Thank you for all your lovely comments. I was on the brink of giving up and am so-o glad I didn’t. There is a chance that I will be able to meet with my agent tomorrow, providing lock-down doesn’t happen first. I’ll keep you posted.
Thank you, everyone, for your support. It means a lot. @Hilary, please never give up. I’ve been told there couldn’t be a better time for pitching, what with so many events cancelled and agents working from home. And you deserve a break too.
