Insecure Writer's Support Group: SURPRISE

Hi everyone.  Something unexpected happened a few days ago, and since it has to do with my writing, I figured I'd share in my IWSG post.  So, here's what went down: One of my ninja aunts went to a writer's conference, and…she pitched one of my books.  AND she got 2 requests.

This came as a complete shock to me.  Basically, she signed up to do one of those agent-dating services, read my query letter for one book and told them about my other manuscripts and yeah.  That's how it happened.  And it gets even more interesting.  One of the agents she pitched had already requested and rejected the same manuscript back in 2011 after I got my offer of rep.

Anyway, I figure if anything comes of this it would be a great story.  If not, my ninja aunt still has mad pitching skills.  It's been a tough time recently, so this was a nice surprise.

Hope you're having a great week,

Ninja Girl
