PitMad Success- I Have An Agent!

Today, I realized I would have to pull out of PitchWars but for the best reason possible. I was offered literary representation by Deidre Knight, senior agent and president of The Knight Agency. It was actually a result of my last and final submission of STATUS: POSITIVE on PitMad. After having written an Adult SF entry that made it into PitMad but didn't get any requests, I wasn't going to pitch S:P on the Twitter feed. At the last minute, I changed my mind.

You get a solid "A+" with the expectation that there will be new and exciting works forthcoming from this very bad boy. Transgenderella, anyone?

“Imperfection” has never felt so perfect. This novel really should have pulled my hair and spanked my ass if it was going to mind f**k me so hard. Damn, I loved it. BAD BOY is a tale of broken characters, broken promises, and anti-heroes/heroines that will leave you doubting who to trust and what to believe.

Renard “Ren” Grant is a BAD BOY. That is, he doesn’t quite know how to be a boy. Currently, Ren is a trans YouTube star secretly working for the Black Iris underground vigilante group. He tracks down men who prey on women and 'convinces' them to change their ways. Things get…
