Very sorry to report that I received a call today from Moses Cardona of JHA to report the untimely death of my agent, John Hawkins. He was 71.

I'm sorry to hear that McFangus. I had read that he passed away and didn't put two and two together. Will you stay with the agency or will you seek representation elsewhere? (Not that it is any of my business, I am just curious what happens in cases such as these--whether the rest of the agency picks up the clients or not. It's tough either way, I'm sure.)

I love connecting with and helping other AQCers outside this forum as well. You can find me all over the place!

One of my books has been with Kensington for a couple of weeks now. They came back and requested all sorts of bio info on me and wanted to know if I had public speaking experience. Cardona promised to get in touch with the editor over there to see where we stand. As for seeking different representation, it depends on what Cardona has to say next week. I was thinking of switching, anyway, but John was a great guy.

Break a pencil! (Good luck, that is.) Hoping something sweet comes your way.

Sorry, MCFang. Always sad when someone we know passes away, even if we only know them in a professional capacity.
