It was weird, though, because the agent that discovered us didn't seem all that threatening. If anything, she seemed friendly about it all.
As an agent, she had us sign some paperwork that we probably should have read. We don't know if it was for a traffic summons or maybe she made us take out a mortgage, but if it is, the joke's on her; you can't steal money from people who don't actually have any in the first place!
Writers especially say that agents are essential, but if they're so useful, how come they can't even carry out a basic assassination? We were beginning to wonder what Agent Holly could even do for us.
So if you haven't already guessed, today's post is us announcing that we've signed with a kick ass agent named Holly from MacGregor Literary, who unlike many agents we've dealt with in the past is funny, personable, and answers e-mails faster than 3-6 business months. She actually replies to us the same day we send her something (who does that?).
But this announcement comes with both good and bad news.
The good news is that she wants to represent us, and as her first item of business, she wants to shop around a book version of our blog, with almost entirely all new content, to be printed in full color through a major publisher.
The bad news, of course, is that she will not assassinate our sworn foes, nor can she help us meet Captain America.
We'd still like to think the good far outweighs the bad. So stay tuned for more info on the blog book as it becomes available to us, and until next time...
Cheers and stay classy, folks!
