"I guess I was lucky - my agent did suggest changes in my books, but nothing major! Her suggestions made sense. Right now, I am working on a cozy mystery series, and the first book, which is done, there were only a couple of things she addressed, and…"

Hello Karoline...I sent you a reply to your question on the Novelists (struggling or not) message board.  :)

Hope you are having a lovely evening!

Delighted to have you in the novelist group, Karoline. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.

We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.

I hope you’ll enjoy the group.

Novelist Group Moderator
Author of The Wednesday Sisters (a nationally bestselling writing group novel) and the forthcoming The Wednesday Daughters (Random House/Ballantine)

Karoline, I haven't even sent one twitter! I have to start for my job; when I post a piece on the Hometown Pasadena website I am now supposed to twitter about it. Yikes. I'm hoping that once I get the hang of it, I'll do it for my personal, as well. Crossing my fingers!
