Happy New Year!

We launched this blog in 2011 and it’s been a huge success: we’ve had some wonderful contributors, some wonderful comments, a terrific readership and (um) the odd argument.

But please help us find more readers. If you have a blog or website, then just insert a link to us, let us know when you’ve done so and we will send you a FREE copy of Getting Published. If you want us to write a guest post for your blog, we’ll do that for you too.

Meantime, we hope you all had a fantastic Christmas – and have a wonderful 2012. Wishing agents and book deals for you all.

    I live in sw France, and I am having trouble finding a literary agent that specialises in both humerous narrative poetry and novels> Do you have any ideas? Also, how much does it cost to have my work edited? I have written two books, but have never submitted anything, as yet.

    Hi Rosemary, there’s not much of a market for humorous narrative poetry, so don’t be surprised if agents aren’t thrilled by that option. They probably figure they won’t be able to sell it. But pretty much any agent will have an interest in novels.
    In terms of the cost of editing your work, we can happily help. Just go to our feedback page to find out more about what we offer. Or email us, attaching the novels themselves, and we’ll get back to you with a quote.
