At long last, I have finished the draft of the above. Now comes the hard work. Since my dose of lurgy over Christmas and the New Year, it has been difficult to concentrate on anything. That and other problems have limited the time I’ve been able to work.
I have decided I will not self-publish The Crystal Ship for the moment. I am actively looking for an agent at present and have sent submissions out. Now comes the wait. From past experience, I would do well not to hold my breath. Previoius attempts with book one, took anything up to four months to come back and in one case just over six.
I will keep you posted how events unfold.
