I've been very quiet in The House for several months, not simply because I'm anti-social but, I have been busy.
Through LinkedIn I met a Ghostwriter who, after several exchanges said he would like to read my first completed novel - Counting the Dead. The story of a young police officer whose father, a serving detective sergeant had been murdered whilst on duty. He liked it to such an extent he introduced me to an independnet film producer in LA.
Since then I have written a prequel to Counting the Dead, An Introduction to Murder taking the story back to the day the young constable was sworn as a police officer. The full manuscript for An Introduction to Murder is also in LA and so far, no-one has said NO!
Now, that is no guarantee of success, but it is coming up to Christmas and I know what I would like in my stocking.
Just a note for those struggling to find an agent. Elsie (Jericho Writers) gave me a link to Harper North (http://harpernorth.co.uk), an imprint of Harper Collins. Based in Manchester they concentrate of northern authors. They accept unagented submissions and want to read the full manuscript.
