@AgentPete, is there any way of knowing in advance if a submission will appear in a particular session (I'm thinking about organizing kids and time and stuff)?
And if not, are the sessions live and gone, or recorded and made available?
Well.... is there a limit to how many I can submit? Is there a deadline? Did I fail to read this information on the page?
....and a weirdish question....
Can I submit for someone else -- with their permission of course?
I feel like I may not understand this process. So, if someone could let me know if this is accurate please.
We submit the first 20 pages. Redhammer chooses a certain number to "discuss" on facebook? On video? Are the people who are "chosen" notified ahead of time?
Thanks -- Amber
I have a question @AgentPete --will showing our WIP on a public forum affect our work in terms of agents/editors/publishers holding it against us? I´ve heard that you can´t share more than a certain amount of pgs in public, or is that just if you were to print/publish it somewhere like a blog or wattpad?
I'd prefer only one submission per writer per session.
There's no deadline, but I take subs in the order they're received. I don't really want to do more than ten or a dozen per session. However, experience shows that writers quite often don't show up for the live session, and if they don't I'll skip their submission and go on to the nest, so it's not always clear how many from the queue I'll end up doing.
I'd really prefer you not to submit on behalf of other people, it raises all sorts of complex issues.
Basically, I'll discuss EVERY submission, as long as the writer makes it known that they're watching. You will learn quite a bit from seeing other peoples' work reviewed, so don't just tune in for yours and then pop off! It's a bit like spending an hour or two inside an agency.
It's instructive, listening, even if you haven't submitted any samples.
Since the videos are removed after 24 hours, I don't consider this to be a problem. What I think you're referring to is the warranty that's a standard part of most contracts that the work hasn't been published before. Sending a few pages for review isn't going to cause an issue here.
Yes, just go to the Litopia homepage on Facebook, at 6pm UK, and you'll see it happen live. The recording will be available for 24 hours only, then deleted. This was today's event:
@Barbara Honestly, when all was said and done, there really wasn't any reason for me to hide. Agent Pete's feedback was fantastic and has given me a clear direction on where I should go with the beginning of the novel. If I can do that, I'll likely have a solid contender on my hands (that's the hope, anyway).
And thanks again to @AgentPete for taking the time to do all this!
@AgentPete, sorry for the mixup. I was posting on Litopia hoping someone would let you know I was listening, but don't have a facebook page anymore. I appreciate your effort on my behalf: I am sorry to have wasted your time due to the issue at hand. Thanks for working so hard on behalf of Litopia.
Heard some of the earlier comments, very helpful (yes to reading drafts aloud!) and then it went dead on me.
