My First

So, I'm back and had mixed feelings about my inbox when I returned. First, I was a bit...ahem...irritated that my soon-to-be-ex agent didn't bother to reply. I'm getting the feeling I've been too nice and way too patient. I've written an email to the owner of the agency...yes, I'm procrastinating picking up the phone. Why can't people just do what they say they're going to do?

BUT, on a happier note--I was also very, very excited to find one of my short stories has been accepted by Crimson Highway (http://www.crimsonhighway.com/) and will appear in their April issue. It will be my first short story published. It's a "for the love" deal, but so what? A writing credit is a writing credit!

This makes me happy.

First, CONGRATULATIONS on the story published! Woot!

Second:Why can't people just do what they say they're going to do?

No integrity? Lack of respect? Head up their nether regions? Good luck. My collaborative screenplay writer friend just dumped her agent (a supposed "A list" agent) for the same reasons you are considering. She's already had several nibbles from other reputable agents.
