Several literary agents have responded to my queries for my novel THE ALTERED BOYS CLUB that I’m a good writer; write something else. There’s no market for my book about child sexual abuse of boys. I guess that’s why Google turns up 3,510,000 newspaper articles about child sexual abuse by priests and Dick Wolf is dedicating an episode of his hit show ‘Law & Order:SVU to the topic of pedophiles in a private school wanting to protect its reputation over the boys. Could it possibly be that the newpaper editors don’t think people will buy their papers, or that Mr. Wolf doesn’t think people will watch his show?
I’ve paid a price in rejection slips for being ahead of the game. Now that a similar story is coming to prime time,my novel warrants further consideration. It’s about awareness for prevention and rounding up and stopping the predators. The media brings that awareness.
