Looking ahead

I was invited to send the usual synopsis plus first three chapters of my latest MS to a literary agent. I've been going down this road for a good many years now, but still can't help thinking....'if only'... Perhaps I should know better; I've failed to interest literary agents for the last twenty years or so, but at least John Hale saved my bacon and published six of my books, so I've a lot to thank him for. We've parted company now, and my next book will be a paperback imprint of my very first novel, NORTH SLOPE. I have already had an invitation from an Alaskan magazine to send them a copy of the book when it's released (it's set in Alaska). The reason I'm telling you all this is because I was asked to let you know how I got on having severed my connection with Hale. We'll see.

I've read North Slope and it's a good adventure in the style of Hammond Innes. Highly recommended. Best of luck with your new venture, Mick!

Never mind the "if only". At least you're still optimistic enough to send your book out. Good luck.
