Eagerly Seeking...

Having survived Comic-Con here in San Diego, I want to let readers of this blog know that I am currently eagerly seeking military science fiction written by veteran military personnel who can make the military parts seem exceptionally "real."

I am also eagerly seeking urban fantasy with adult, male protagonists.

If you are an author with a project that falls into those two areas, I'd very much like to hear from you a.s.a.p.

I think most writers would agonize over leaving an agency. There are exceptions, I'm sure. Buttheads come in all manner of packages.

I was once with a well-known agent who never worked with a contract, at all. He just agreed to rep you and that was that. That practice also made it exceedingly simple for him to shed writers when he couldn't sell their books. As far as I know, he still works this way (but I'm not sure).

Contracts don't seem to be binding at all when it comes to an agency dumping a client. Like most writers, a lot of my pals and acquaintances are also writers. Many are the tales of agents dropping them a brief note in the mail saying "Oh, well. I can't waste any more time on you. Goodbye and good luck." Which is understandable, from a purely business aspect. Any writer who has developed the appropriate thick skin would understand that and just move on.
