Hi there super duper awesome profile viewer! My name is Tabitha. I am a 22 year old college graduate with a passion for one thing above all else: story-telling. No matter the media, story-telling is my love, and I think I'm pretty decent at it. Currently I'm working to finish editing my first completed novel, and I'm also the head designer and lead writer over at Machines in Motion, a startup indie game developer! We're currently creating an awesome procedurally generated horror game called "The Kingsport Cases"! It's awesome! Thanks for checking out my mediocre profile. Have a great day!

When I woke up this morning I couldn't believe what I saw. Like usual I checked my email, mocked spam in my before-my-morning-coffee voice, and eventually went to our site host for The Kingsport Cases to check on our traffic. I couldn't believe how big the numbers were, and a quick look at where the traffic came from revealed a strange thing:

Traffic was coming from PC Gamer. That huge, monumental, hundreds of thousands of hits per day publication.

I haven't been in the indie business for very long at all. I mean, I still have a day job! But seeing our game mentioned in a press that big is one of the most motivating things I think I've ever seen. With that said, it's time for me to go work on Kingsport some more. After all, our demo is out in a few weeks!

Give our mention in PC Gamer a look if you're interested, and thanks for viewing. :)

In a query, is it okay for one of the comp titles to be a book the agent represents? #askagent

@SueColetta1 But I've had a small handful of people say that an agent would be wary of a piece which has been seen online - despite privacy.

@SueColetta1 In my draft query, I mention I'm a member of an online workshop community called Scribophile - to show that I'm not winging it.

Dec 9 2014, 1:07pm

@SueColetta1 Back atcha! :) What are your thoughts on the question? I've heard arguments for and against including workshop mentions.

@SueColetta1 Thank you! And not yet!
