ROGUE RECOMMENDATION — CLUE #1

It's that time again—on August 16th, The Real Book Spy will reveal his August Rogue Recommendation. 
Each time we have given away recommended books. Six all total! This month we have a couple extra books to give away, courtesy of a Big 5 publisher. (Oops, bonus clue.)

HERE'S CLUE #1
After struggling with their agent for several years, this author took their manuscript to a regional writers' conference only to learn that their agent had died. A young editor at the conference took the manuscript home, pitched it to their publisher and the rest is history.

Watch for Clue #2 on August 9th!

  3. I'm thrilled to say that I gave the author an early career jacket blurb, & now I get to say "I knew him/her when!" :)

  4. Sounds like my kind of luck -- at least up to "the agent died" part. Keep telling myself the happy ending is just around the corner with my next book.
