About R.J. Wycke

Author. Mexican't aficionado. Many other defining characteristics, but you can judge me by those later.

Writer’s Digest 2017 – NYC


ISURVIVEDWell, that was a whirlwind of a weekend. Truth be told, I’m still recovering from pretending to be outgoing. It was exhausting.


I went to the pitch slam, which I was terrified of. I survived (For proof, see picture at the left).

All the agents there were ridiculously nice and everyone I talked to wanted to see more of my manuscript. Needless to say, I walked out of there feeling like a million bucks.

Fast-forward to Sunday, or rather Monday, 3:00 AM. I read my query letter over. And over. And over again.

It was perfect!

Whooosh. Sent. Dusted my hands off and prepared to send the next. When I opened the master, what do I see? A typo. Noooooo!

Now it’s almost Friday and no response. My inbox is stubbornly empty no matter how many times I check. Rationally, I know it takes weeks. But I’m agonizing that my one typo cost me.

As Cersei says: “More wine!”




New Site!


Welcome to the new site! It’s a little on the barbaric side, and for that I apologize. Most of my energy has been focused on completing my manuscript in time for the Writer’s Digest Annual Conference in NYC. When I have finished with that project, I’ll put some time into making the site better.

For now, enjoy this excerpt from my upcoming novel!
