Ever wondered what an agent's slush pile is like?

Go here:

http://www.rosedog.com/search.asp

and search the novel submissions.

The website allows authors to upload their finished novels so agents and publishers can read them and, ideally, negotiate a publishing deal. There are some very, er, interesting approaches to novel writing.

I'll say no more...

What a fascinating site! I could potentially spend the rest of the day flicking through to see what people are offering - but if I start doing that I may never write anything again! One thing that never ceases to amaze me is the sheer number of people out there who are writing. And the wide range of things you could sit down to write a novel about!

Hmmmmmm, she said mysteriously. Not sure what to make of that site at all.

Jeeeez...quite interesting to see how their search engine works. I ticked 'Women', 'Mainstream' and 'Humour' and got a story about a mutant chicken.

But seriously, how many agents and editors are going to spend time seeking out yet more submissions?

Um....
Er.....
There certainly are some 'interesting' ones there:))

Hee! If your novel-writing esteem hits a bit of a slump it's a good website to visit! ;o)
