I am a writer of novels, short stories, poems, flash fiction and I read on average around 50 books a year and review those books on Goodreads. In 2015, I read 67 books which has to be my book reading record. You never know how much you read till there is a counter recording your reading habits!
In 2017, I am continuing my quest to find the perfect literary agent for my Middle Grade-YA manuscript. Other writers warned me of the perils along the journey towards finding an agent or taking the self publishing route. Last year, I did get disheartened with the lack of response from literary agents. I even got a book deal, but upon investigation they turned out to be a vanity publisher on an Internet blacklist. I’ve had a gap of almost eight months now. It’s time to revisit and update the agent spreadsheet and see who is out there this year who might be a match. Wish me luck!
