Since my books were doing so well in Germany, I had an idea. What if I wrote some new crime-fiction titles exclusively for them? But unfortunately, this idea came to me about two years ago, and I no longer had an agent. So I thought, well, I'll go to the London agency. But when I looked them up online, I discovered they only represented US reprints, not originals. Foiled again. Without an agent, there was really no way for me to contact the German publisher and present my idea. I even contacted my old agency, but understandably didn't get anywhere. After thinking about this off and on for over a year, I finally gave up. Just didn't know how to proceed or who to contact. And unfortunately, the books should have been written two years ago to follow up the success of the previous titles.
Flash forward. I received an email today -- won't say from who -- asking if I might be interested in writing new books, not reprints, for the German publisher. Would I ever. Not sure if this will happen, and like I said, ideally the books should have been written way back when I first had the idea, but I so hope we can work something out.
PS: Just saw the cover comp for Bad Karma. So cute!!
