Candice: As friends and family will tell you, I’m not really a patient person. I dont mind abit of waiting around but then I just get abit fed up. This can be true of airports or traffic jams. No seriously, you don’t want to get on the wrong side of me in a traffic jam, especially those people who think its acceptable to queue jump … anyway, getting away from my drive home from work.
So, this whole “send words off to agent, wait about three months to hear (or possibly hear nothing)” is really getting on my t*ts! Come on people, its a good book, just get your finger out of your arse and pick it up.
This is backed up by the fact this year has not been brilliant for one reason or another, so it would be nice for someone to say “Yes we love your book, its the next One Day, come and see us.” I’m not looking for hollywood take up, but some positive response would be good.
This is supported by two things:
One: I’m reading a book Phil has lent me called “The Girl with the most cake”. He bought it because he liked the title. Well, its amusing but not brilliantly written, and I think our book is just as good, if not better. But it has been published…. so how did they do it?
Two: One Day was good, I liked the concept, but the film was abit mixed. Fundamental problem with book to big screen translations. A mini series would suit us fine, with a small part for me of course.
So, publishers out there, come on, let us in!
