A few more Character studies
One upon a time,
before e-books, Amazon and the large corporate book shops, the publishers would say,
'YAY!' to a new book idea and a contract would be signed.
Today we're in fast moving and un-chartered book publishing waters.
(and things are going to keep rapidly changing by my guess)
Now my potential new book ideas have to go to 2 or 3 aquistions meetings
before I get to sign on that much wanted dotted line.
For my latest book Fetch there were 20 people at one meeting!
I think these meetings are a bit like the ones in the Vicar of Dibley!
I have never been a fan of design/creativity by committee.
And it's a super cautious one in these changing times.
So fingers crossed these, and the new story will get me a new book deal.
