Today BBCHAT continues! Bigblackcat’s Humane Agent Talk: In Which A Particularly Agreeable Agent Answers a Series of Questions that Have Nothing to do with Queries or Submission Guidelines. Yeah, don’t try to make an acronym out of that last bit.
|Yup, she’s adorable AND has
good taste in writers!
BBC: What are you reading right now and why do you like it?
AR: I’m just finishing up CLOUD ATLAS by David Mitchell, which I’ve wanted to read for a while. It tried to lose me a few times, but what a great book.
BBC: Paper or plastic?
AR: Paper, paper, paper. I read my manuscripts on a Kindle though, as I have a very vivid nightmare of someone bumping me on the subway when I’m holding 300 loose manuscript pages, and tragedy ensues.
BBC: What’s on your bucket list?
AR: My bucket list of life, or my bucket list of books? I’d like to travel to Madagascar and read MOBY DICK.
BBC: Have you ever ridden a mechanical bull?
AR: No, I also have very vivid nightmares of mechanical bulls.
BBC: What type of agent are you?
c) Bushwhacking Guide
d) Red Ink Saturation Committee Member
AR: (e) All of the above, nearly in all cases.
BBC: If you had a guaranteed sell, what type of story would you like to represent?
AR: I have an ever-changing list of projects I’m looking for, but then something totally unexpected will land in my lap and I’ll wonder why I hadn’t asked for a spiritual picture book treatise on the morality of UFO cow abduction before! Basically, I’m better at leaving the creativity to the writers.
BBC: Tell me three things about yourself, one of them being a LIE! First person to email me with the correct guess as to the lie gets… something awesome.
AR: 1) I appear in “Girls Gone Grabblin’” a documentary on noodlin’.
2) I’m a rabid X-Files fan.
3) I know how to surf.
