Just joined Townhouse after completing the 'writing for children' course. Highly recommended.
I've also just completed the third draft of my Middle Grade novel (Floyd's long journey home) and in the process of self editing! Why do I always end up with more words when I do that!
The story is about a Yorkshire Terrier who is snatched from home by a Perigrine Falcon and dropped many miles from home. Befriended by three stray dogs, they agree to help him get home. Floyd has to face many dangers - a protective stag, a farmer with a shotgun, a raging river and finally the devil-dogs, Ronnie and Reggie. He also has to overcome the prejudices of the stray dogs, one who has a distrust for dogs of privilege and another who hates humans. Will he see his humans again?
Any thoughts on potential agents, or if anyone would like to read some of the story to offer feedback, would be much appreciated.
