Video Blog: Progress of The Serpent Sword agent submissions

Here is my second video blog in which I talk about the progress of agent submissions and the draft of the sequel to The Serpent Sword. (Apologies for some choppy edits.)

Since filming this, I have received my first rejection letter. It was not a form rejection. The agent had taken the time to actually write some comments, which I appreciated.
The following quote sums it all up really.
"very competently and confidently done, and this reader at least had the sense that you’re completely at home with, and very in control of, these characters and their situation and this period – but I’m afraid I also felt that the story and the situation seemed a bit too familiar and not sufficiently a set-up that I’d never encountered before (in a general sense)"
So, a milestone that every writer has to pass. It could have been worse. He could have said it was utter rubbish!
Watch this space and wish me luck. My agent is out there somewhere, they just don't know it yet!
