I am so excited. On Friday, December 10, 2010 I went to my face-to-face writing group. There were only three of us there that day. At 10:41 a.m. I showed Roxie Hanna and Becky Shillington my copy of Jeff Herman’s Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, & Literary Agents 2011. I explained how it had symbols for the different genres, and has 1094 pages, and explains what editors and publishers are looking for. Both of them said they were putting Jeff Herman’s book on their Christmas list.
When I got home, I discovered that Beth Pehlke, Jeff Herman’s publicist, had emailed me at 10:41 a.m. This was the same time that I was talking to my writer’s group about his book. That was uncanny. Her email said she had noticed how I had mentioned Jeff’s book in my blog several times. She asked if I would like to interview Jeff Herman on my blog or have him to do a guest blog. After I floated around and danced on the ceiling around ten minutes, I called my writing group friends and told them. They danced around on the ceiling with me.
Of course, I wrote Beth and told her that I would be honored to interview Jeff Herman on my blog. The news gets even better. She is going to give me three copies of this outstanding writer’s resource of 1094 pages to give away as prizes for three lucky random winners. The winners will be chosen at random (choosing numbers from random.org). Winner 1 will be one of the people who leaves a comment for the Book Review of Jeff Herman’s Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, and Literary Agents 2011. Winner 2 will be one of the people who leaves a comment on the blog post where I interview Jeff Herman. Winner 3 will be chosen from one of the people subscribed to my blog.
The blogs will be posted at 12:01 a.m. EST on January 11, 2011. You will have 7 days to leave your comments or subscribe to my blog. The winners will be chosen and announced at 12:01 a.m. EST on January 18, 2011.
Please leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to let me know questions you have about Jeff Herman and/or his book.
