On behalf of FinePrint Literary Management, I am thrilled to be able to welcome debut novelist S.E. (Susan) Ward into the fold as a new client.
Susan's work has appeared in Baen's Universe among others and she has a story forthcoming in City Slab. In 2005, she won first place in the ChiZine Short Story Contest. Susan keeps a blog here, and has a website that talks more about her writing here.
Why did I choose Susan? First, like Kelly Gay, Susan's query letter was nigh unto perfect. Concise but packed with information and a great opening paragraph hook. In short, she knows how to sell herself. Second, the concept behind her novel was truly original, fantastically and beautifully so. In fact, I couldn't stop talking about how original it was to friends and colleagues, so in retrospect, I guess it's a good thing nobody glued my mouth shut, huh?
Anyway, welcome to FinePrint, Susan!
