Tomorrow I am meeting a real life author- and no he is not Maeve Binchy’s love child! He is the writer in residence in Dun Laoghaire Council. We used to live there and I never thought it was particularly arty until we moved out into the wilds of Kildare.
I mean I wonder how many councils in Ireland or the UK have a writer in residence?
I emailed him about his ‘meet the author’ sessions and I am meeting him in a library at 3pm on 3rd December.
I will have my proposal and synopsis with me. I suppose the main objective is to get an agent at this point. I have sent off my non-fiction proposal to The Lisa Richards agency, so fingers crossed with them.
I am no shrinking violet to I am ready to embrace the rejections!!! If/when I get rejections that will be one potential agent off my list.
So here goes tomorrow – get to see what a proper author thinks of my writing and my book!! Nervous….
