Hollywood & Vine Magazine Appearance
On March 22nd, during the maelstrom of vexed emails (evoked by Writers House Literary Agency's incompetence), unbeknownst to the antagonists and comrades, there was an 'angel' observing the proceedings from the sidelines. Angela H., founder of Breaking Into Hollywood and Editor-in-chief of the Hollywood & Vine magazine was intrigued and entertained by the chaos wrought by a sloppy intern of a 'major' NY agency. She stood up for the rights of the affronted writers, deeming our story worth telling and offered each of us a chance to shine in her chic magazine (www.hollywoodvinemag.com/issue6). We were asked to describe our stories, say a few words about ourselves and explain how we deal with rejections on a personal level. Fortunately, my entry was one of those picked for print:
The works I presented were: THE PENSIVE PRINCE - the essence of happiness ; GRUMPY PUPPY - a tale of puppy love ; JINX THE CAT - a hero's measure.
My 'rejection philosophy': Frankly, I am glad when a body you are about to invest huge amounts of time and trust in shows its true colours early on - a stitch in time... I take the view that agencies are entitled to cherry-pick whom to work with, provided they are ethical about it. After all, I certainly am not seeking half-hearted representation.
