From yesterday's Publishers Lunch:
Kenneth Harmon's BETTER NOT POUT: A Tale of North Pole Noir, in which a
hard-boiled elf is framed for murder in a world that plays reindeer games
for keeps, to Ben Sevier at Dutton, in a very nice deal, in a pre-empt, by
Scott Miller at Trident Media Group.
Carole Nelson Douglas's next three Midnight Louie mysteries, the "V,W,X"
books in the alphabetically titled series about a feline PI pitched as "Sam
Spade with hairballs" and part-time noir narrator who discreetly aids two
amateur and two professional human crime solvers in Las Vegas, to Claire
Eddy at Forge, for publication in 2011-2013, by Howard Morhaim at the Howard
Morhaim Literary Agency.
Sam Spade with hairballs...uh-huh.
And a hard-boiled elf, eh?
So let me pitch you this great idea I got about a radical jihadist made out
of wood by a puppeteer, who discovers he has an insect for a conscience ...
named Yemeni Cricket ....?
Uh-huh. Publishers filter. Uh-huh.
