Just received this email from Agent Jane –
Thank you very much for sending me Jiddy Vardy and I’m sorry for having taken so long with it. There is some really evocative, lyrical writing here and I was intrigued by the story, but I’m afraid that we are finding this sort of historical fiction extremely difficult to sell at the moment and I can’t see enough of a market for this. I wish that weren’t the case. But for now I will have to pass.
So, is Historical Fiction a No-no at the moment?
Ah well, still other publishers to hear from, hopefully they find there is a market for it. I think there is, in fact, I know there is. And at least I got some feedback.
