One for the money..two for the ..what?
I and a male co-writer (who is not my husband or boyfriend) are getting ready to submit our action-adventure thriller to agents. At a writer's conference, we met several agents who didn't quite seem to know what to do with the two of us; it was like they were distracted by the co-writer part or couldn't figure out how to treat us. Is our co-writer status creating confusion that may work against us?
I don't know a lot about this because I don't represent any co-writing teams. I have "author" and "ghostwriter" which is totally different.
You two are preparing to share in copyright? And share in editorial decisions? There are people who do this successfully: PJ Tracy ,and Perri O'Shaughnessy come to mind.
You might need to go to those meetings with some proactive answers about how you plan to work together.
If anyone reading the blog has experiences with this, as either writer/editor/agent, I'd sure like to hear about it!
