A Similar Project

YABAD Wednesday

Yesterday's book was The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski. I was immediately drawn to the storyline and the writing style. I found myself saying -- often -- I could have written that exact sentence.

A few chapters in, when I found distinct similarities to characters and plotlines in Cloud 9, I laughed out loud and said, I guess I won't query her agent!

Turns out, her agent was my dream agent, the agent I queried first, more than a year ago, who told me the writing was strong but she had a similar project in the works.  Looks like I just read the similar project.

And I loved it.  Enough said.
