I wanted to address a couple of things and then I really hope we can go back to me being ignored on most areas of the internet :). As I stated before, I don’t do really well with attention, positive or negative, and I’m really craving some normalcy here.
A) Until I get updates that there was an arrest and a court date and someone is convicted, this guy who queried me is innocent. He could be at home right now nursing his lawnmower wound. It still could just be a random thing.
B) I seem calm: I’m not really. But typed words are so much easier to control. I can type and retype and I have been for these three days. Thinking about everything I say. Mostly because of stuff like this. I know you guys mean well but you can stop emailing me this stuff I would be grateful.
Not one person here made a comment about how the agent might of treated the writer. Agents can be mean and nasty, but I guess from your comments writers should just take it. Should agents treat writers like crap and expect no retribution?
All I can say is the agents that I know are really nice. I send a form letter rejection written by the head of our agency and it is really nice. I don’t think I’ve ever said harsh words to a writer, and even if I had, or even if some other agent had, no one deserves to be physically touched ever.
I talked to the Book Goggles website, and the HuffPo, and with this blog post this is the last I will speak of this thing that happened be it random or not until I know more about what actually happened. I just want to talk about books, and do my job, and be Southern and bury everything that happened into a deep corner of my mind and never talk about it again :). But I do promise to give updates as I know more information.
