HenLit "the next thing"

I was playing tennis with a writer that some of you know, Cara Lockwood. I told her about my travails and troubles with getting a decent agent. I mentioned that I'm doing contemporary fantasy, which she said is really going to be popular soon. I sure hope so.
But then I popped my HenLit idea on her and she just practically squealed: "HenLit! Yes, that's the next thing." She even guessed the title when I gave her the basic plot idea. I guess that 's a sign that I should write this this novel, isn't it, ladies?

Meanwhile, I got a request from a very hot agent for a partial on my fantasy novel. And...a movie company said no, but very nicely. They really enjoyed reading the novel...just not for them. One day, I will figure out what those code words mean.

Anyway, hope Cara's view is the right one. We should strike while the metaphor is hot!

    "Loved the book but it's not right for us" means that someone (or some people) read it, loved it, but couldn't get it past the powers that be.Usually because they didn't know how to market it, it's too small for their market, or too much of a departure from their usual fare. It's a compliment. SOMEONE loved it.
