A simple book review turns into a moving, emotional journey

The title lured me. I knew I had to read it. The review part was a bonus.

Read how Kim West’s Peaceful Passages touched my heart and led to the healing I didn’t know I needed. Read the review…

 


It’s officially ready; An Agent’s Point of View

After a mental wrestling match with the autovetter, it seems that I passed the final review (translates to no errors) and An Agent’s Point of View went live on Smashwords yesterday.

I watched and browsed other authors and agents before deciding to give Smashwords a try. So far, I’m liking what I see. I’ll definitely keep you posted as time progresses.AAPOV_2012_Cover

As for An Agent’s Point of View, readers (targeted to writers, new and published) can get a brief, inside look at the author-agent relationship while learning what to (and not to) do when dealing with agents (and editors).

I like the brevity of my book and certainly have plans for an extended version possibly for next year. I want this book to be my voice (my Southern drawl doesn’t’ come through, however!) and to give readers the feeling that they are engaged in a conversation with me. If you have ever watched crime drama The Closer on TNT (you know…they know drama!), imagine Brenda Leigh Johnson’s (played by Kyra Sedgwick) drawl coming from this agent’s mouth. Well, maybe toned down just a tad! There could be a subconscious connection since Brenda and I have the same middle name. Who knows. Anyway, my voice is there. Readers can discern the rest!

Go on now. I’m done! Go get your copy. I have some calls to make and I need to stay on schedule. You know, that whole practice-what-you-preach thing.


Pitch Me! Workshops starting soon

There are only three workshops in each category scheduled for the remainder of 2012. We have upcoming sessions starting July 9, August 27, and October 15.

After the last workshop in October, workshops won’t begin again until March 2013. Be sure to pre-register for one of the upcoming workshops soon to secure your spot as they are filling up quickly.

Each workshop (fiction and nonfiction) is limited to 15 writers. Workshops last 6 weeks and are conducted weekly in our new and exciting online forum and via conference calls where you can interact with a literary agent and special guests, including authors and editors who know what it takes to succeed in today’s marketplace.

By pre-registering, you can make a partial payment as long as the balance is paid before the first day of the respective workshop.

To learn more about the workshops, what to expect, and available dates, visit Pitch Me! Workshops.


Welcome…

Red Writing Hood Ink is a full service literary agency. We represent some of the industry’s most talented fiction and nonfiction writers.

A word is dead when it’s said, some say. I say it begins to live that day. ~Emily Dickinson, 1872

What we do…
RWHI does much more than pitch and sell for our authors. As a full service literary agency, we work with authors from the day we receive the initial query and, hopefully, for many years to come. We work to cultivate long, lasting relationships where our efforts and focus include helping our authors with marketing and promotion before and long after their work is in print.

We help our authors build their platform through various efforts including social media, setting up interviews, and serving as both a direct and indirect liaison. We believe in teamwork and believe that a team is only as effective as its members. As such, RWHI serves as literary representatives, but we operate more like a family where consideration and dedication are integral elements of our services.

Although we are a small agency, we have cultivated strong industry relationships with publishers large and small. We are proud to say that our reputation in the film industry is also growing.

What are our interests?
Our tastes are eclectic and include MG, YA, NA, women’s fiction, adult horror, thrillers, mystery, paranormal and supernatural, crime fiction, true crime, and inspirational fiction. We are not actively seeking nonfiction but will consider a short query.  We rarely consider children’s books for younger than MG or memoirs unless there is a strong media or organizational tie-in. We do not accept poetry at all. Of course, we do not discourage authors from sending a query for something not listed here.

We are dedicated to our clients’ success!

RWHI adheres to the AAR Canon of Ethics.
