They Lurk in the Shadows

Sorry for another repost, but I'm still not 100% and my brain doesn't want to cooperate. Enjoy!

Upon realizing that literary agents are just regular people, my youngest daughter (8 years old) informed me she thought agents dressed in all black, like ninjas, and hid in the shadows, waiting to attack publishers who won't give their clients book deals.

I seriously don't know where she comes up with this stuff.

    Oh, and whenever I see that picture, I always wonder just how drunk that guy would have to be to put his head so near another guy's butt just to get a sip of a drink LOL.

  4. I can't stop laughing at that picture!

  5. Love the agents dressed in black theory. Your daughter might just be inspired. Great picture and post!

  6. I remember this post! If only your daughter were right... querying would be a lot more interesting. :)
