"I am going to talk you down: no, you did not lose the deal by asking for some better terms and a bit more money. My agent did the same thing with my novel, which sold to Crown/Random House, and I had to wait about a week to hear back that the editor…"

Please talk me down from the ledge

My agent called 2 weeks ago (smack in the middle of BEA, so I understand that may have complicated things) to let me know someone had made an offer on my non-fiction proposal. It was a low-money offer from an academic publisher, but a GREAT editor who I would be honored to work with, and I think would really champion my book (which is on a controversial subject) - plus she made an offer within 3 weeks of receiving the proposal, as opposed to all the other editors who had received it 5 months…See More

"Wow, what an excellent and timely question. There was a piece last year in the Wall Street Journal about this: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703514404574588013890887366.html. I'm working on a book now that is a memoir/pop…"

Suzanne Barston commented on the blog post 'Whose Fault is it When the Manuscript Fails to Sell?'
"Erin, this is all excellent advice. Thank you. I think it's because I spent most of my life as an actress first/writer second, but the nature of the agent/client relationship in show business is not usually as much of a power struggle. Here in…"

Suzanne Barston commented on the blog post 'The Agent: What Just Happened?'
"Aw crap. :( I know my agent had my non-fiction proposal out with HS and Workman, so this doesn't bode well for me. I was really digging the HS website and hoping for a bite from them... they just seemed so on top of new media and the current…"

Hey lady! I like places to leave comments. It's a disease!

Hi Suzanne,
Yes, I'm happy to report that Silent Sorority is now available - you can check it out here. I'm slammed at the moment with some deadlines but I'll drop you an email next week to learn more about your project.

Hi!
Jillian was also not very good at entertaining herself, until more recently. But the naps are like a gift! And she's been napping longer lately, which is fabulous. What a difference.
Yeah, I had hoped to have an agent before the baby came, but it just didn't happen (a couple of "bites," but no takers). So back to revisions, which are definitely helping. Hopefully I'll have better luck this time around. Have you started shopping your proposal?
I'm going to try to add you as a friend...we'll see if this works!

Hi, Suzanne,
I started to reply on the Mother Writer page, but thought maybe it would be more "polite" to just write directly to you. Isn't eight months fun? My daughter, Jillian, is so interactive and so fascinated by everything (and constantly putting everything in her mouth -- two teeth so far!). That's so great that you're carving out time for writing. What are you working on? I'm in the revision stage of a novel...

Greetings! Welcome to the Health and Medical Writers group! So far it's been pretty quite -- feel free to jump start some discussion. I look forward to chatting with you.
