Laura,

Thank you so much! You have lessened my stress level. :)

Lori - romance is usually 80-85 k words, so don't worry about it being too long.

The two sites I found best to send to agents (I have one now) was AgentQuery and 1000literaryagents. Don't forget though, to check every single agent on Preditors and Editors before you submit to them. Good luck!

Hello everyone,

I've recently finished writing a Novel and am looking for info on where and how to send it to agents. Still doing edits so I have a little more time now for research. 

It's a love story that spans over a 30 year period with a couple twists in between.

It's over the 70,000 words I'm finding are usual for a novel...hence the editing.

Look forward to learning and getting to know everyone here. 

Have a great day.

Valerie, I recognize your name! It is nice to have a fellow Gup among the ranks!

Barb, good to see you here as well as in SinC Guppies.  It's nice when familiar names crop up in places you don't expect to see them.

The mysteries I'm working on are also set in the 1970s, although later in the decade, and in Europe. I've looked in bookstores to see what else has been published about that time, but there are very few books in print. I hope that means that the market is wide open and not that no one is interested. <fingers crossed>

I write cozy mysteries. I'm also writing a women's fiction book. It's about four women who have known each other since grade school, then went their separate ways after high school. They come together for a funeral. All have pasts that they don't want to share. One woman would like to know what the marine who fought in Vietnam broke their engagement upon his return. The year was 1970.

Hello everyone! I’m hoping that everyone is well and that there are some of you here that are choosing to participate in National Novel Writing Month this year. I am actually going to be working on two separate projects that were already started prior and I am using NaNoWriMo to (hopefully) finish it up.  Some of latest blog posts discuss NaNoWriMo and my plans so I hope that you will go and check out the latest posts on my blog http://write-2-be.com/ and continue to check it out throughout the month of November as I will be blogging about my progress.    

Also please go and check out the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine (http://write2bemagazine.com/) with articles and video tips to help you get through NaNoWriMo should you choose to participate.  And as an added bonus for the month of November I will be posting articles and/or video tips pertaining to NaNoWriMo throughout the month of November.  For continued updates on Write 2 Be Magazine you can also like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page and become a part of the magazine!   I look forward to having you become a part of the Write 2 Be experience!
