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


  1. Ninja aunt wants you to write your book reviews. She misses them. Stop being an insecure writer; you have awesome writing skills.

  2. That's incredible new! I have all my fingers and toes crossed for something to come of this. And yes Ninja Aunt does have mad pitching skills!

  3. That. is. awesome! And what a great aunt!! Congratulations! :D

  4. Just one question. Is your ninja aunt available? LOL

  5. Sounds like we could all use a ninja aunt.

  6. She's one heck of a salesperson. Good luck!

  7. Holy cow!!! That's an amazing story! And what if it turns into an offer? That would be the best "how i got my agent" story ever!!!

  8. I'm here for July IWSG and dying to know what happened!! Did you get an agent??

    Happy IWSG Day!
