Getting an agent offer: from signing to submission

When an agent is interested in offering rep, they will usually call you on the phone to discuss your book. They’ll tell you how much they liked it and why, what their vision is for it, what edits they’d like to do if any, what publishers they’d like to target, and then probably ask you...

Nophek Gloss by Essa Hansen
"Nophek Gloss is an extraordinary, passionate, and lyrical exploration of how not even a multiverse can fill the void left by grief.

Essa Hansen does a rare thing in science-fiction. She combines a poetic literary style with dazzling technology, strang" Read more of this review »
Nophek Gloss by Essa Hansen
"Note: I received this ARC from Orbit, so special thanks to the publisher.

Immaculate world building and complex alien technologies form the backbone of Essa Hansen's debut novel NOPHEK GLOSS, an angst-riddled space opera about one boy's quest for ven" Read more of this review »

Nophek Gloss by Essa Hansen
"Nophek Gloss is about a far-flung future where many civilizations have utilized a technology that allows them to travel not just to other worlds, or even other galaxies, but other universes. Caiden is a teenager, living an idyllic existence, complete" Read more of this review »

Bertrand Russell
“Two things are to be remembered: that a man whose opinions and theories are worth studying may be presumed to have had some intelligence, but that no man is likely to have arrived at complete and final truth on any subject whatever. When an intelligent man expresses a view which seems to us obviously absurd, we should not attempt to prove that it is somehow true, but we should try to understand how it ever came toseemtrue. Thisexercise of historical and psychological imagination at once enlarges the scope of our thinking, and helps us to realize how foolish many of our own cherished prejudices will seem to an age which has a different temper of mind.”
Bertrand Russell, A History of Western Philosophy

T.S. Eliot
“An election is coming. Universal peace is declared and the foxes have a sincere interest in prolonging the lives of the poultry. ”
T.S. Eliot

T.S. Eliot
“No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—
Almost, at times, the Fool.”
T.S. Eliot.

Dan Simmons
“In the beginning was the Word. Then came the fucking word processor. Then came the thought processor. Then came the death of literature. And so it goes.”
Dan Simmons, Hyperion

Cynthia Voigt
“Oriel didn’t move. But inside of his head, all was movement, like a river running over rapids, searching for the way through, trying routes around rocks and over shallows, a turbulence of thought more rapid than he could follow. Griff, he knew, would do and say nothing until he heard Oriel’s choice.”
Cynthia Voigt, The Wings of a Falcon
