I had a long visit on the phone with an agent today. It was very empowering to hear her comments on my writing. She liked my characters, emotion and overall writing. She felt all I needed to catch the eye of an editor in a big publishing house was to come up with a unique plot in my westerns. So if anyone out there has something they think would be a unique western plot let me know!
A reporter and photographer for the local paper were out this morning for an interview and photos. The reporter was easy to talk to and heard more than she probably cared about the business. :) After I cleaned my house and set out my books thinking the photos would be taken in the house. (Heck, I even cleaned my desk) the photographer wanted me outside and wanted to know if there was anything around the property that looked western! All I could think of were the horses and cows. (I never claimed to be a fast thinker). So she set me on a fence with the horses eating hay right next to me and the cows in the background. It will be interesting to see how the photos turn out since there was a cold wind and that makes my eyes tear like crazy. I kept swiping at the tears running down my face.
Trying to think of a new unique plot line has me thinking about a book I've had simmering in my head for a while. One I didn't want to attempt until I was a better writer. It may be the book I need to break into the big leagues. I'll keep you posted.
So how was your day?
