Kevin Kaiser, Ted Dekker’s literary agent in charge of global domination, has asked the question of who is the next Ted Dekker—and he is serious. So serious that he has opened up his normally closed agency for one day and one day only.
On November 15th (now closed), he will accept a query letter, synopsis, and sample from unpublished writers of suspense.
The great thing for us speculative fiction writers? It doesn’t matter what genre you’re writing in, as long as your story has strong elements of suspense. In his own words, Kevin is “looking for the next Thriller writer”, and since Ted Dekker is certainly in the speculative fiction camp, the door is open.
With my personal THIRST™ System of writing, I’m in a good position to enter the contest. But even though I have worked hard to build suspense and keep the reader turning pages, I doubt I’m the next Ted Dekker. But one never knows. Certainly Ted didn’t know when he first began his writing journey how far God would take him.
So go on over to Kevin’s blog, read the rules, and prepare for the contest. In my estimation, this is a great opportunity to get your foot in the door with an amazing agent!
