A Very Nice Literary Agent Indulges in Polite Rants About Queries, Writers, and the Publishing Industry

January Happenings

STATUS: Okay, two days without sunshine is one day too many here in Colorado. *grin*

What’s playing on the XM or iPod right now? LET’S STAY TOGETHER by Nick Driver

I finally get to talk about the excitement unfolding here at NLA. What a way to kick off the year.

Huge Congrats, Marie, as the news hits Deadline Hollywood and Variety and of course, this blog! Since we don’t have cover art for the first book yet, you’ll just have to look at a picture of Marie Lu instead.

Notice the articles don’t mention the literary agent or film co-agent who actually brokered the deal. LOL. Hollywood. We are so unimportant.

    I’ve been following Marie-Lu since the Glass Sonata, and I know I’m not the only one.

    Way to go, team Lu/Nelson!

    I could never have wished this on a better person, or a harder worker.

    Still reeling from excitement overload here–thank you so much, Kristin! And well, *I* mentioned you and Kassie in my blog post on it, because not to mention really IS a grievous error!

    (Martinelli: No way–you read Glass Sonata from back when I was posting it online? I love you!)

    Sometimes they make a movie out of a book. Sometimes they make a book out of a movie. In either case I like to kvetch and complain that the 2nd one wasn’t true to the 1st one.

    But if they make the book and movie at the same time, what am I going to do?

    😀

    Congrats, Kristin and Marie!

    Hurray for lack of cover art. She’s gorgeous! Beauty and talent, great combination.
