I read a great deal and I write a lot, I have several completed novels. I was told that the more you read, the better writer you will become. My goals were to submit my fist novel to a literary agent in January 2018. I postponed only becuase I found an amazing professional editor, who I send the novel to last night. I am on her schedule for 2.5 weeks and once received it will be officially ready for submission. I am very excited as I have had a lot of positive reviews from Beta readers.
