The Christine Green Author's Agency, who represents bestselling authors such as Maeve Binchy, has used the youwriteon story review process to express an interest in one of the site's highly rated writers. This follows on from another literary agency that represents The Princess Diaries series reviewing and representing another highly rated site member recently. So keep a check on those reviews!
Member Andrew Wrigley found a free will review for his story Resurrection this week from a literary agent from the Christine Green Author's Agency, suggesting he get in touch.
Andrew informs us they specifically want him to develop his story A Quiet Street in Amsterdam, with a 'loose deadline' of 12 May 2010 to get the first 20,000 words + synopsis to them.
Andrew comments, "It is more than I could possibly ask for, let alone hope for. And it is all down to youwriteon.com. Without YWO I would never have got this far. The website made writing my #1 online pass time and so here we are, less than two years after joining.
Regardless of what happens with these agents, it has been great fun and very enabling.
Hopefully, I will be able to put something back into the site if some sort of deal goes ahead. I certainly feel that I owe more than a debt of gratitude."
We wish Andrew every success, and it is now recommended practice to keep an occasional check on those occasional free will reviews that may pop in. Though recommended not to be chewing anything solid in case you find a leading literary agent pops in amidst the reviews you are waiting for.
