After mysteriously failing to launch the young poet Melody Fly-Wheeler
onto the literary scene (see 10th July) the publisher and publicist Arty
Finkel begins to groom his latest discovery for worldwide success.
Amaryliss Blowser has just completed a one-million-word teenage
historical vampire romance set in another galaxy.
Although Finkel couldn't remember the title of this epic, he said:
"I can tell at a glance she's a talented girl - I don't need to read
her work. I trust my instincts. I'm looking forward to handling her."
