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

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.

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.
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.
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.
i didn't answer in the forum, because I don't know very much about Agents.
take care and all the best!!!!
At work now. Must dally on with horrible book.
