Eric Christopherson commented on Victoria Dougherty's blog post The By No Means Finished Ultimate (Cold) Reading List of Fiction For Men
"I think we need some new books written that really appeal to men's interests. For example, I've got an idea for a crime novel I think I'll call "The Bacon Thief.""

Eric Christopherson commented on Victoria Dougherty's blog post Ten Reasons Men Must Start Reading Fiction Again
"A lot of men I know think there's nothing TO read. They still retain a lot of love for books they'd read in their youth though. I think the industry has been somewhat self-perpetuating on the gender divide. Most of the people in publishing…"

Eric Christopherson commented on Dana King's blog post Where Do Ideas Come From?
"My ideas often percolate for years. I'll usually have half an idea sitting around waiting for the other half. I think you read my novel, Crack-Up, Dana, and I had the idea of writing a thriller from the POV of a paranoid schizophrenic for many…"

Frame-Up (a crime novel) is free today

Free tomorrow too on Amazon as an ebook. It has 4.5 stars out of 12 reviews but could use some more feedback...

Here is the link: http://amzn.to/t462bT

The Prophet Motive Wins Award

My cult thriller, The Prophet Motive, was my first attempt at fiction writing; but, after having written my second novel, I went back and revised it and turned it into an ebook. It's doing fairly well based on the Amazon reviewers, and it just won a Red Adept Reviews Indie Award for Thrillers/Suspense, 2011.

Thumbs Down from Traditional Publishers

Well my co-written thriller, Frame-Up, has now been rejected by most of the relevant imprints in New York after about a year of submissions. (That keeps us in good company, though. All of New York passed on John Grisham's The Firm the first time around as well as countless other novels that later enjoyed success.) We've now self-published the book:

I began dealing with Anita, the agent for Crosswind through Bill Thompson (editor extraordinaire, as described in Stephen King's "On Writing") after Bill edited my novel.  From what I can tell, those internet posts began with a disgruntled person she dealt with years ago.

Crosswind successfully repped a book last year ("House of Roses") and for me, they are the right choice. 

 

So...long story short, yes.

Hi Eric! Congratulations on over 5k sales of Crack-Up - that is awesome. I may ask you for hints on how you did it.

It is indeed CaFS I'm self-publishing; it's now called Heart of Rock. A steep learning curve, but I'm getting there by salami slices. I'm going to do Kindle, Smashwords and a paperback with, I hope, Lightning Source.

So Eric, your co-authored project sounds terrific! What are the latest efforts/developments, if you don't mind sharing? Wishing you the very best of luck -- it's a hard row we hoe, no doubt about that. With all your hard work, it will pay off eventually! (A dear friend of mine just signed a 3-book deal with Pengui. After 3 years w/an agent who didn't sell it, she changed agents and it sold in a month!)

Eric,
I realized after I left that last comment that your post was several months old. not sure how it floated to the top of the list again. Once i saw it was dated, I was hoping we'd heard nothing else just because things were still pending. I'm sorry to hear ti didn't work out with the agent.

As I mentioned somewhere else the other day (I forget where), we're just going to have to keep knocking on the door until someone answers.

Good luck and keep the faith.

Dana

Eric - Following your advice I've uploaded some material on YouWriteOn and I agree with you. The formal assessment system they use wouldn't be to everyone's taste (and to be honest, some of the material you're asked to assess is mediocre at best), but I like it. I've not yet received any feedback so I can't say yea or nay to your opinion of that, but I do see that it's a "fairer contest" than Authonomy. Nevertheless I enjoy Authonomy. I agree that writing talent isn't a determinant of ranking there, but I've networked with some lovely people - and there are one or two really fine books on the site (just not highly ranked!).

just wanted to wish you the very best of luck, ERic!
i didn't answer in the forum, because I don't know very much about Agents.
take care and all the best!!!!

My good ol' folks, back in the 18 hundreds, had some Kristoffersons on my mothers side that went to the states after granny kristofferson drowned in Oslos factory river, Akerselva. - But it wasn't the name, I promise you. - It was MCSmiths mention, of course. You knew that. First time aboard the site yesterday, and started the rounds by searching after others interested in the same kind of writing as I like.

At work now. Must dally on with horrible book.

Terrific space, Eric. I like your alter ego -- bogey is one of my faves.

I like your picture. Funny.... you look a lot like Bogey. Or maybe Bogey looks a lot like you?
