The hardest part about writing a book, apart from actually putting the words down on paper of course, is the waiting once you send it out to agents. How long will it be before they get back to you? probably about two or more months and that is a long time when you want to know if they will accept you and your work. So usually you start to write something new in between. Which is fine but I'm finding that I'm still itching to do something to help my work that I have just sent out into the cold world. Luckily I have found a competition to enter which should keep me busy, if only I can get my book characters out of my head long enough for me to concentrate on the brief. Okay time to start!

I've just sent my YA novel, Janalya out to some agents.It is always an exciting time, the possiblity that someone will like your book enough to take it on. Sadly it takes a while before you hear back from agents because of the amount of manuscripts that get sent to them. However I am hopeful, this time, that my work is strong, as are the letter and synopsis that are required. Fingers crossed and I'll update you as I hear any news.
