Thanks for the add, Grant. Your book looks awesome. It's on my list for Nov.

Yeah, it can take a while. My first novel was published in Australia in May 2005, North America in January 2007 and the UK/Ireland in September 2007. Good luck at the book fair for Aussie (and other) rights sales!

Hi Grant,
Thanks for the invite and good luck with your debut! It's so hard to get published so congrats!!! Do you know if Switch will be available down under?

Hi Grant - thanks for the invite. Name's Scottish, but the connection goes back a few generations now

Hey Grant. I don't think I have, but it's a small place, so anything's possible. Is he a relation of yours?
Nice to meet you, by the way.
Cheers
Chris

I wondered if your story was set in Portland, OR (or Portland, Maine). It would be great to meet you. If you have a signing in Portland (Powell's Books or Murder by the Book are you best bets), let me know, and I'll come up.
The update on the slow-moving agent: I sent her the first few chapters of my next novel, and she wants to see the whole thing. Unfortunately, I'm still writing it. I used to get excited when an agent contacted me. Now I know how little it really means.

Hey Grant - the pic is from my Alex Ross collection. If you have yeet to see his paintings (again, 'paintings' - all photo realistic and done by hand, without computers), drop by his site, www.alexrossart.com.

We are a lover of words, my friend. We can only do them justice if we let them live.

Hi Grant, KARMA sounds like a great experience. Good for you! I'll keep fingers crossed for you. You are so right that a deal is not a deal until it's signed. Especially in the film world. Maybe it's not as bad in Canada as in the U.S. I learned a great deal when my agent asked for a treatment of my novel Eye of the Mountain God. That's my 4th novel and there's an offer from a NY publishing house and interest from others. So please keep fingers crossed for me as well. Did your workshop include doing treatments?

Hi Grant, nice to meet you. Sorry to be so long responding, I've just been too damn busy. Wow, what a coup to land a summer workshop slot for your screenplay. And a thriller coming novel out this year, too! You must've been storing up a whole lot of wonderful luck! Isn't it interesting how often it happens like that. I landed an agent and a publisher for 2 different mystery/thrillers in the same week a few years ago. Tell me a little more about KARMA. Did you write it in a screenplay workshop? Best of luck to you!

Hi Grant,

Can you spread some of that belief in my direction?! E.V.

Hi Grant,
Congrats on the screenplay spot! And the cover of Switch looks really great--looking forward to reading it.

Is the YA novella you mentioned on my page available anywhere? Would love to read it...

Grant -
Thanks for adding me as a friend. If you have any hardboiled/noir shorts lying around looking for a home, I'd like to take a look at them for The Back Alley Webzine.
Best wishes for your book-

Hello, and welcome to the impoverished world of writing.

Hello Grant, well done on the book. I hope it is going well for you. My novels are beginning to build in the UK and my latest detective novel, Deadly Waters,has just gone into the States and Canada, but mainly in Libraries. It takes time to build a reputation, readers and following, unless you are fortunate enough to have your publisher put a large marketing budget behind you. They only usualy do that (in the UK at least) if you are already well known as a celebrity, or have steadily built up a track record of sales. I do quite a few talks and it's great when you get reader feedback. Good luck. Talk later.

Here's to new found friendship, Grant. Cheers!
