I’m happy to announce a prominent literary agency in London is representing me and my debut novel, a thriller set in postwar Germany. That novel is the reason this blog exists. So much research that can’t possibly fit in the story has landed here.
It’s tough to get noticed by a literary agent these days, and I’m thrilled to have found one who believes so strongly in the story I want to tell. The road to a traditional publisher is slow and bumpy, and there are no guarantees. But I hope my story of postwar Germany — with all its twists, turns, hopes, anguish and moral questions — finds a good publisher. And lots and lots of readers!
For now, I’m still putting the finishing touches on the manuscript. And my follow-up novel, whatever it may be (haven’t decided yet!), will probably be set partly or wholly in postwar Berlin.
I’ll keep you posted, and thanks for reading.
Awesome! I’m working on a Post War script set in Germany and would love to read the book!
Thanks, Robert! You’re the second person who’s told me they’re working on a postwar Germany script. I’d be really interested to hear more about you and what you’re doing. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want!
Cool, will do!
