Weronika Janczuk, D4EO Literary

I am pleased to announce that I am now represented by the fabulous Weronika Janczuk of D4EO Literary. In 2011, Weronika will be submitting my novel Killing Hamlet to publishers of fine literary fiction, and will be representing my future works as well.

Weronika is really smart, really funny, really cool and has (obviously) exceptional taste in writing. I've known her via the internet for a couple of years, and it's exciting to be working with her now. I hereby retract every negative comment I've ever made about the internet.

As everyone knows, literary fiction is a tough sell, especially in this market. I intend to remain quietly hopeful about Killing Hamlet finding a publisher, and I will keep working away on my other books (which rock like hurricanes, you).

  1. You're licking your lips -- you're ready to win!

    Congratulations, Scott! Seems like it's been a road of bumps and twists, but you've taken those in stride and seem to have grown and developed along the way. I'm sure Killing Hamlet will find a home soon.

    And the Internet is slow to accept apologizes but is willing to consider it in the face of literary near-brilliance.

  2. Congrats, I know Weronika too, you should be in good hands. Things went awry with your other agent? I'm also jumping ship on my agent, she hasn't returned a call or email for over 6 months. Tough part is I have a book on submission with 7 publishers and can't get any form of status update, makes it difficult to query that book again. Luckily I have another one.

  4. You already know how excited I am about this! Weronika is fantastic in so many ways, and I'm crossing my fingers that she'll find a very awesome, well-paying publisher for your books. :)

  5. Scott: Thanks!

    Nevets: I must draw the line at Love At First Sting, sir. Yes, the line must be drawn there. And I have groaned, but not much grown, alas.

    Rick: My previous agent is an absolute professional and a great guy; I have nothing bad to say about him. But Weronika rocks the house, and she's more on the same wavelength regarding my books. I've made the right move.

    Anne: Thanks! I told you I'd have news.

    Ivana: Awesome is more important than well-paying, you know. But well-paying's good, too.

  6. Nice. "Quietly hopeful" is probably a wise way to go, but I'm rather certain you're awesome.

  8. I read this and laughed out loud. I think you are the first client to call me funny.

    Of course, very happy this is happening!

  12. Congratulations! I hadn't realized that you left your previous agent. You are both awesome, so this will work out well.

  13. Weronika: What do your other clients call you? Dour? I doubt it. Of course, I recognize your humor because I myself am so darned funny.

    Tina: Thanks! It is!

    Teresa: Thanks! It does! It really does.

    Anne: It is fabulous news.

    Livia: It's a pretty recent development, but all for the best for all involved. I think Weronika and I will make an excellent team.
