At the MSU-Denver publishing panel last Tuesday, Lynda Hilburn talked about her publishing history. She says she was like so many other writers, happy to get interest in her manuscript. Excited by an offer, she published with a small press against her agent’s advice. The problem? Distribution.
When she got her rights back after they dithered over the third one in the series, she put them up herself. And struck gold. Well, maybe silver.
That’s when she came to the attention of a large agency in NYC who made a deal with Jo Fletcher books, a fabulous editor.
The books are great fun. Psychologist Kismet Knight treats vampire wanna-bes. But wait, some of them actually ARE vampires.
Lynda and I will be on a panel at Left Coast Crime tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. — “This Can’t Be Normal, Can It?” Hope to see you there.
