Hello World- Seeking agent

This is me, behind the technological curve, finally starting a blog. I do enjoy ranting, so here we go. Hope you enjoy the ride.

My first posting concerns getting a literary agent to sell my novel. I've completed the first book of a mystery series, and writing pros who've seen it agree that it's good. It takes about as much time to get your writing distributed on a professional level as it does to write it. Lots of research on which agents respond to queries, what they look for, particular formatting for submissions. It's a tough field, not for the faint of heart. There are only about 400-500 people in the U.S. who make a living writing fiction. It takes a lot of persistence, luck, and talent to make a go of it.

So I'll let you know how it's going. Someday you'll get to read a copy of A Memory of Grief, and my other books. In the meantime, I'll try to keep you informed and entertained with a variety of tidbbits.
