Throwing stuff at the internet to see what sticks
Sunday, December 10, 2006 Ah, blogger clichés. I do try to avoid them, but every once in a while there's one you can't quite get around. I guess that's how they become clichés. Anyway, another one's come around to bite me in the ass. It's time for my book deal announcement.
From Publisher's Marketplace:
Television Without Pity recapper Jeff Alexander's EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM WATCHING TELEVISION [working title], a humorous look at how TV has changed the way we view topics such as interpersonal relationships, workplace trials, small screen physics, and death, to Shannon Jamieson Vazquez at Berkley, in a nice deal, by Kate Epstein of Epstein Literary Agency (NA).
So that's my excuse for any lengthy lapses in posting that may occur over the next several months. My agent sold my book proposal, and now somebody expects me to sit down and write the book. Is this a nutty business or what?
Oh, and also the fact that Rome is premiering in four weeks, the four-hour premiere of 24 is a week after that, and our home renovation is at a point where we should be able to start moving back upstairs right around mid-January. I think that for my birthday I'll ask for the ability to go for weeks without sleep. posted by M. Giant 9:01 PM 14 comments
I wonder what people will imagine NA means. ;)
Hey, I saw this on Publisher's Weekly or someplace like that. Congrats - Trash must be so excited.
Yay! Another item for my Amazon wish list!
That's great news! Good luck.
Congratulations on the book deal! It sounds like it's going to be fantastic.
Congrats mate, am really pleased for you. Also looking forward to those 24 recaps...
Have you told us how you met your agent? I would love to hear about how you went about getting a book deal and an agent.
Well your wife is spreading the news in her neck of the woods and promising all of us mentions :) so ... start writing! Can't wait to hear you tie in adoption, tv, blogs & those wacky online friends' of M. Giant's into a snappy, humorous package! But we all promised to pre-buy it off Amazon in exchange for the mention!
That's great news, M. Giant - I can't wait to read it.
Woo hoo! That's really great news. I can't wait to read it!
