One night, the week before Thanksgiving, my Hollywood agent called me at work, w hich he had never done. He said that Disney wanted to buy the rights to my book outright for $300,000, but they had to have an answer by 8 p.m. or the offer was withdrawn.
My agent called an hour later. He said, "We closed at $400,000."
dear literary agents looking for new blood-
hi!! i'm over here- i have more ideas than you can possibly imagine and it's not in my blood to give up or to lose a fight.
and-- disney? are you out there?
i know you'd love my stories! harry potter be damned ;)
