I had a number of proposals which I sent to various agents I found in The Writer’s Handbook. After looking at his website Andrew appealed above all the others as he seemed to have a particularly nurturing attitude towards his clients. I was therefore delighted when he called me the day after I’d sent my proposal to him with positive feedback and suggestions for another project in which I might be interested.
