Miss Snark Hearts Me. Or At Least Sets My Fears at Ease. For Now...

For those of you Writer Types who visit Manic Mom, the witty and always impressive, all-knowing, Clooney-lusting, gin-swilling, Killer Yapp-walking, nitwittery-loathing, fantabulous mysterious agent extraordinaire, Miss Snark, posted a question from me on her popular blog.

View it here: Miss Snark

I think I'm in love.

Very cool! I, personally, can't wait to read your book. I wonder if all your already made fans were to deluge the publishers with pre-fan mail...

I'm still thinking of writing a book myself.

It's called "Touring The World From A Barstool."

Manic Mom said...

Jenster--hey! THanks so much! Funny story though, I had heard of a writer who had a bunch of people contact an agent saying how great his book was and that the agent should take the writer on. That writer got black-balled from the writing community! No lie! But thank you for saying you'd read my book.

Beefcake--Now that's a book I could relate to! It sounds like it would have a terrific hook! You write already, right? You drink already, right? Do you like to travel the world? I'd say the book has practically written itself! : )

Oh, The Joys said...

I'd read you... and I do!

The Dummy said...

Sounds like there are some really talented writers getting all sorts of rejections! I hear though it's very much a matter of perseverance, and if one gets a 'glowing rejection' it at least gives a lot of hope that it's more a matter of timing rather than substance.

You're a great writer MM! Publishers should take their heads out of their butts and see that!

The Dummy said...

oh, btw, r. partygirl has agreed to take over the BWW! We'll now be reporting to her blog this Friday (I wrote about it over at my blog). You're still doing this with me right?

Monnik said...

Love it. Those are great points made by Miss Snark.

Tell her to keep her good advice CUMIN.

;)

Manic Mom said...

Oh The Joys--Thank you!

DD--Thank you too! And yes, of course I will still do the BWW! It's awesome incentive.

Monnik! OMG--LOL with that one--going to post that over at snark right now! Hilarious!

If my husband writes a book, I guarantee you he'll write every word while in the bathroom...
(What else could take 45 minutes, twice a day?!)

TOURING THE WORLD FROM A BARSTOOL..

It should be called, WRITING THIS BOOK WHILE PASSING STOOL

Manic Mom said...

LOL Alicia!!!

The Dummy said...

lol! I would probably pick up that book just because it had a title like that.

Randy said...

OMG...when I read that post on MS I wondered if it was from you!! (insert eerie music here)

Kim Stagliano said...

Miss Snark's opinion was really cool, wasn't it? Like you made it into a secret club already! LOL! And you have, Manic. You'll get there!!

Colorado YA Writer said...

I knew that was from you! You have a special voice!

Doug Bagley said...

gotta do what JFK's dad did. onece you self publish buy, and have others buy, enough of them to get your book on the best seller's list. it'll take on a life of its own from there.

Swishy said...

I saw her site yesterday and I was like GO MANIC! YEAH! Lol.

Alicia said...

MM~ I've got to tell you that I had the best mocha-chocolatini EVER.

It was made with Grey Goose Vodka.
Godiva liqueur.
Starbucks liqueur.
and a splash of chocolate syrup.

HEAVEN in a martini glass!!!

Manic Mom said...
