“1775” now has literary representation!

I would like to inform all of my followers that, on April 15, 2011, I signed a contract with literary agent Ms. Jacqueline Varoli Grace, president of LifeTime Media, Inc., in NYC.

This is a major leap forward in the development of 1775, which I began back in the autumn of 2007. With the help and connections of Ms. Grace, look forward to more exciting updates as we seek a publisher for my humble manuscript, 1775, which tells the compelling story of the start of the American Revolution in Boston. (See the previous blog post: Why I Wrote “1775”.)

In the meantime, please continue to share news of this forthcoming book with all of your fellow history lovers. And please encourage them to subscribe to the blog, and follow me on facebook or twitter. The more followers, the more convincing it is to a would-be publisher that there is a genuine interest in my telling of the story of 1775, and a strong followership will help to ensure the book is indeed published.

Most Humbly,
Derek Beck

    Congrats on getting an agent for your 1775 book. I agree that the Revolutionary War is a fascinating subject, especially the first year or so. The Battles of Lexington and Concord and then of Breeds Hill were truly an amazing events considering the participants: a bunch of farmers on one hand and the world’s preeminent combined military and naval power on the other. Ripe material indeed.

      Thanks so much for your support! And just imagine seeing these amazing scenes in a cinematic way, such as a miniseries. This is my ultimate goal, as I am also a filmmaker.

    Hope you’ll have a Kindle edition! I’m looking forward to reading it, but (as a quadriplegic) I can’t turn pages.

    Congratulations! I’ve been wondering what’s been happening on that front and I’m happy to hear that progress is occurring.
