* A NEW YORK AGENT...*

I just received an e-mail from a New York agent who is interested in reading my memoir. For now, I can e-mail a few chapters for their consideration. 


Obviously, this doesn't guarantee anything, but what an amazing opportunity.


I am honored and excited!

  7. Woo hoo! It shows you are cared about -- someone is interested enough to use their time to see if you are what their people want. I'd say that's pretty impressive.

    Long ago when I got a really signed and more personal rejection letter from a better publication instead of a form letter from a lesser one (I know; bad to put value judgments like that on anything) I felt elated because I was getting rejected from a higher class of publication personally! And you aren't even being rejected -- really CONSIDERED!

    Bravo! Fingers crossed!

  17. HiYa, BECKY-O ~
    Very cool newz! This may be the start of sumpin' BIG!

    But even if it's not, I feel certain you will eventually get the memoir published because you have the determination it takes.

    Best Wishes For The Best O'Luck Always!

    By the way, I learned recently that my photograph and a letter I wrote to Roy Rogers and Dale Evans in the very early 1990s is going to be published fairly soon in a book titled 'THE TOUCH OF ROY AND DALE - Vol 2'.

    That's not as neat-o as Becky-O publishing her memoir, but it's better than a kick in the head from Trigger.

  18. Hey Mr. Stephen T. Mc!! I think your news is FABULOUS!! And even MORE neat-o than mine! Yours is a done-deal!! Congrats! Be sure and let me know when the book comes out!!!! And thanks for always being so encouraging to me!

    ReplyDelete
  19. No, no, your news beats mine. I won't make even a dollar on my "done deal", whereas your memoir will eventually make you money AND fame.

    I believe the Roy and Dale book comes out in late October. 12.5 minutes of fame for me.
