Finding a Literary Agent

Breaking into the book business requires the author to be a little savvy not only for the writing part but for the business part as well.
Truth is most writers aren't very business savvy. They would prefer to just write and leave the business part to someone who enjoys that sort of thing....well, I do anyway.

These days, authors are required to get out there and promote, promote, promote. Gone are the days where the publisher will set up a marketing plan....unless you have already established yourself as a best selling author.

Anyway, before I lose my train of thought, sometimes we don't want to search out the publisher but prefer to have an agent do that sort of thing for us....

Happy Writing.

Kick Ass Sequel

Haven't been here in some time. Does it really matter? No, probably not. Getting so caught up in trying to update blogs and stressed by the content doesn't really appeal to me.

Been re-working a novel I wrote a few years back...getting it to where it should have been years ago. I'm adding things, new characters, new dialogue, more intrigue. Plus, I'm making it a sequel. I think it'll kick ass as a sequel.

It's a young adult paranormal thriller based in 16th century Ireland.

It's called Sacred Circle.

Look for it at your local bookstore in late 2010.

Also working on a adult fiction book...more about that when Sacred Circle has all of its updates updated.
