Introducing Mel

Hi everyone. Many thanks for letting me join the race. I have been reading the blog since the early days when you were over on Kate's blog but alas was a little too shy to join.

I suppose the reason being is I've been bashed about over the past couple of years because of my previous agent. To put it bluntly, and you can read more about it on my blog, I've had a nightmare. But hopefully, I'm back on track again.

So where am I up to? Book one was worked on with said agent for two and a half years. I have a new agent showing interest in book two, agreeing to work with me chapter by chapter to get it ready. Both books are fully written, but need fresh eyes. After my bashing, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and my feet firmly on the ground.

But book three has been beckoning for a while now so I am going to be drafting that out. I have two ideas ready and am pretty sure which one I'm going to go with....so, watch this word count.

Once again, thanks for letting me join and please pop over to my blog to say hello. I'm blogging under another name as I have a tendency to wear my heart on my sleeve. Oh and please be patient with me until I get used to this blog thing. I'm a complete novice!

Thank you for all your lovely comments. It's lovely to be part of the gang. Oh and Kevin K. The cheques on it's way. Do you remember how slow snail mail is...

Glad to hear that, Mel. I've had bad luck getting my cheques from the other Racers. I was beginning to think I was tho only one who'd paid mine....
