After struggling with their agent for several years, this author took their manuscript to a regional writers’ conference only to learn that their agent had died. A young editor at the conference took the manuscript home, pitched it to their publisher and the rest is history.

Watch for Clue #2 on August 9th!
Don’t Miss a Thing!



  1. Lisa Black

    I don’t know, but it sounds like a fascinating story!!

  2. Rogue Women Writers

    Can't wait to find out about this one!….Karna Small Bodman

  3. Gayle Lynds

    I'm thrilled to say that I gave the author an early career jacket blurb, & now I get to say "I knew him/her when!" 🙂

  4. Erica Obey

    Sounds like my kind of luck — at least up to "the agent died" part. Keep telling myself the happy ending is just around the corner with my next book.
