Since March I have been very busy sending sample chapters to agents. To be honest I have found it more difficult than writing a full length book. I have had some (totally unexpected) praise and good comments from them, but so far none have taken me on. There are of course always more that can be approached but for the moment I have to be patient and wait for a couple more replies. – Meanwhile the first draft of the second book in the trilogy is progressing quite quickly. Of course, when all that is done I start editing – some of my short stories have gone through umpteen revisions – so book 2 will not be completed until at least the end of this year. In the NOVELS section you can find a short synopsis of book 2.
