I’m happy to say that after a year and a half of doing the salons we have some good news to report:
Two writers found representation as a result of reading at the salon. One of them was signed by an agent practically on the spot. She (the author) offered me one of her kidneys as a token of appreciation, but I refused. Look out for the publication of “Off the Grid” by Janet Goss. She promised to mention me in acknowledgements.
Two authors told us that reading at the salon inspired them to get back to the projects they haven’t touched in over a year. Sparkles!
Two writers-new moms told us that reading at the salon was the reason to get back to writing after six months spent exclusively on diapering, feeding, cuddling and worrying, all with a serious dose of sleep deprivation…
A few attendees told us they decided to start writing again, something they’ve done a while back but gave up because of day jobs, kids (add here)…
Our next salon will take place on November 17th 2010… Stay tuned for details..
And our official site should be launched any day now – http://www.vicamillersalons.com
