Autumn News...

Bonjour Tout le Monde,

This summer was brutal - New York publishing seemed to be paralyzed, but we worked hard and persevered... Liz and I made the editorial rounds in September - we had 45 meetings in four days - yes, it's true! I'm proud of her for keeping up with me :-) The good news is that publishing seems to be full steam ahead after the results that ebook sales are increasing and the industry has breathed a major sigh of relief. Editors are looking for great books and we are trying to find them. Just heard Tatiana de Rosnay speak at the American Library in Paris to a standing room only crowd - if you haven't read SARAH'S KEY - you should, and no, she's not my personal client, but I'm looking for her clone. I'm attempting to read her new tome, ROSE, en fran├žais. Do keep sending good, polished manuscripts our way and we'll do our best to get back to you in a timely fashion. We ask for your patience and if you don't hear from us after six weeks, please send a gentle "nudge" and we'll make sure we get back to you immediately. We receive about five hundred queries per week - and we take each one seriously. Happy fall to all, and keep the faith! A special congratulations to my client Kelli Stanley for winning the Macavity Award for the Sue Feder Best Historical Novel. If you also haven't read CITY OF DRAGONS, you should...
