Nice to see that somebody recognizes that just because you've put 50,000 words on a page that the novel isn't finished. Time for you to pick one, work it over, and send it out. And I mean "work" it over, not look it over.
Ovidia, thank you for your kind condolences and please forgive me for not replying sooner. I've been having serious problems with my computer. My latest book, Escape, is now online at Fictionwise and will be available on Amazon.com next week. Thanks for asking. :)
Thank you, Ovidia! I have a book coming out in August titled, Escape on the Wind. It's a Wyoming historical novel featuring members of Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch. I'll let you know when it's available. :-)
Hi LJ--I just posted a hello on your site--thanks very much for your encouragement & I'll go see if I can find your books here. Reading crime fiction is even more addictive than writing it especially when you're a procrastinator trying to call it 'research'!
I have a friend in Singapore who seems to have found copies of my books in a store there - and one copy in a library. So who knows. Good luck with your own crime novel. Is it set in Singapore? I have yet to set one there, but sooner or later I probably will.
Thanks for your suggestions. I'll definitely try working towards posting something, problem is right now it's still difficult to carve out bits that I feel are okay...
Maybe I'll do more reading on the feedback sites first, just to get a feel of it.
And thanks very much for the offer on peer review sites, I might take you up on that. But again, after I've found my feet.
Wow--you used to live in Taipei? It was--is--an exciting & beautiful place. I'm not sure how much Singapore has changed from the 60's. What do you remember?
