Unfortunately, I would hate to admit that there are more there then I would like to divulge. The number roughly around 30ish. (ouch) While in the midst of writing I find it impossible to read. I fear that I will be influenced by what I am reading. I tend to still buy books and wait for the right opportunity to start reading them. I am nearing the end of the first book now, so hopefully I will get the chance to read more regularly. But, then again I am writing a trilogy so it may be awhile before I have the time to actually sit and read. Have been steadily keeping the pace and hoping that the (would be agent) I have been working with would remain interested. Well on New Year's Eve he called to tell me his word for the New Year is "no"....except to me :) I was beyond thrilled! It's finally official, one of the biggest agent's in the business is now MY agent! He wants the book ready to take to the London book fair in April!!! OMG! I am now writing with a deadline! Big dreams can come true if only you truly believe!!
