Pub Rants

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

Two Years In A Row!

STATUS: First day back in the office after 6 weeks. Slight chaos.

What’s playing on the XM or iPod right now? BRANDY (YOU’RE A FINE GIRL) by Looking Glass

I honestly didn’t think it was possible but obviously it is. *grin*

Huge congrats to Sherry Thomas for winning the RITA-award for Best Historical Romance two years in a row. In 2010, she won for NOT QUITE A HUSBAND. This year, it’s HIS AT NIGHT’s turn!

    And the competition was brutal! What fine writers we have in the romance industry. I always think when reading Sherry’s books that she could have easily gone the literary route and gained accolades there. So glad she chose historical romance…especially Victorian era…Yay, Sherry!

    Myrna: I haven’t read Robin McKinley, but from what I know of her novels, yes, I would say it’s porbably high or epic fantasy, as it’s also sometimes called. I read and enjoyed the first of the Rangers Apprentice series, but yes, I’d also classify that as epic fantasy. It’s really not a matter of liking or disliking. Tolkien is the classic example of epic fantasy, and I love his books. But it’s not a genre I’m looking to represent at this time, simply because it’s not a category I’m as familiar with as others.
