Fill in the blanks

I've got a couple of great things to share but they're both in progress, almost organised and not quite ready to announce. It's been like that for over a week and the blog's got cobwebs so I thought I'd post what I can.

First, a NY agent got in touch with me on Australia Day, offering to shop Hal Spacejock around US publishers. Now, when's the last time you believed an incredible offer delivered via email? Same here, but this one actually checked out. So, ____ from prestigious NY firm _____ with big name clients including ____, _____ and _____ may shortly be approaching huge US publishers like _____ and _____ and _____ and _____ and _____ and _____ and ____ and more with my book.


Next, preparations for the launch of Hal Spacejock Second Course are shaping up. Dymocks Carousel will be hosting an event on the ___ of ____ at ___ pm. Not to give away too much, but we're planning a worldwide _____ _____ _____ of the book, along with a _____ ____ containing ______s and a _____ and even a ______ with comments by ______. Signed, too!

Wow. I bet you're almost excited as I am.

Now for the fun bit. To score bonus points - and not much else - leave a comment with your guesses for the blanks.

Simon Haynes is the author of the Hal Spacejock and Hal Junior series (Amazon / Smashwords / other formats)

Congrats on the US agent find! (wink wink, nudge nudge...) I hope things work out for you stateside.

No more news on the agent yet, but these things take time.

Congratulations on the agent, Simon :) I'm really happy to hear that great things keep happening with Hal! Haven't been this way in a couple of months and am sorry to see that I missed the Hal 2 launch by a week - not that I could have been there :p
