Another Day, Another Meeting

We don’t do this meeting thing on purpose — we make it quite clear to clients that dragging us out of the house to do this sort of thing affects our personal life. They find this to be a challenge rather than a warning. Hence, no time to do what we want today, so massive updates will have to wait another day.

But we won’t leave without a few tidbits. For instance, the latest in the “Pitching” series from MediaBistro. They visit with Richard Curtis, and learn that he’s seeing fiction sales as tougher, but not impossible. His agency specializes in genre fiction and non-fiction. Curtis prefers known quantity authors (though we know he’s signed authors who are, well, not quite as known as this implies).
