Hello Phil. Welcome. You'll find Townhouse people really helpful and many, like you - me included, who are trying to be writers. Lots of help and advice available and offered generously.
I see you've posted on Coffee and Cake. Another good place to connect with a wider range of writers would be The Lounge and, if you've got super heroes, try joining Sci Fi and Fantasy too.
Looking forward to reading your WIP submissions to peer-to-peer.
