Improbable and Unfortunate

The Unfortunate Deaths of Jonathan Wild has had to undergo an unfortunate name change due to Mr Lemony Snicket who has tied the word Unfortunate to the phrase Series of Events in the public consciousness. Curse him. After kicking around several ideas, the working title is now The Improbable Deaths of Jonathan Wild. Unlikely but no longer unfortunate.

Pamela’s agent was so kind as to look the IDJW for me. She had good news and bad news. The good news is she thought the synopsis was terrific and a wonderful story.  The bad news is she didn’t like the other 95,000 words.

That’s overstating it slightly – she only read the first 50 pages or so. She has given me a lot of helpful feedback about what I need to do and has offered to read it again when I have done so which is generous. Unfortunately (rather than Improbably) this is going to require a lot of work.

Once more unto the drawing board. I will finish this one day. However Improbable that may sound.
