[quote=""cw gortner""]Welcome, Richard. Great site; that's a great idea to have something online for agents / editors to look at while you're querying.

Good luck! Sounds like a fascinating novel; I'm sure you'll get bites from interested agents.[/quote]

Thanks, C.W., although I have been to your site and I can see there what I need to work towards!

By the way I asked my librarian wife to pick up your book from work tonight. You might be pleased to know that it is currently checked out, so she had to reserve it for me. It has gone out ten times, which according to her is "quite respectable" for the Albany library system. (Of course you could also see this as nine lost sales...)
