The Eleventh Day of Bookmas

Welcome to day eleven of our Bookmas Giveaway contest. For those who missed the rules, hop back over to the November 30 post and give a quick read.

And of course, before we start today’s contest, we need to announce yesterday’s winner.

Yesterday’s question was: What are the four books that stand out for Kim in her collection of autographed books?

And the answers are 1. Eye Contact by Stephen Collins; 2. Election by Tom Perrotta; 3. Before I Say Good-Bye by Mary Higgins Clark; and 4. Angels Flight by Michael Connelly.

BW was yesterday's winner, but this note from her made me decide there are two winners:
I never would of gotten the fourth title without Jennifer's input and I feel I would be stealing her answer if I did and that's not right. If there is more than one book as a prize please send one to Jennifer. She deserves it.


So, congratulations to BW and to Jennifer. Please email your contact information to and we’ll get your prizes out immediately.

Now on to our contest . . .

I realized belatedly that many of my questions had to do with my early days in publishing, but few were connected to my life as an agent. So I’ll remedy that today.

When asked how long I’ll dedicate to selling a book, I always tell the story of the little book that could. The book that spent two years sitting on one editor’s desk, when suddenly the call with an offer came. I’ll be honest, I really felt I had run the course with this book and had sort of forgotten about it. I know the author did, too. Needless to say we were wonderfully surprised when that call came.

What is the title of the book and who is the author?

The winner will receive three books.
