I'm a writer!

Woohoo! You all thought I'd never do it, but yes, I've finished the rough draft of How To Be Clever that was going to take me a week or so to put together when I first started talking about it back in 2003 or thereabouts! Wow, what am I going to do with all the time every day that I previously spent not writing my book?

Well, for starters, there's another Online Memory Challenge tomorrow. Please do come along and have fun!

Would you find it useful if I were to put you in touch with David Bodycombe (twice MSO Creative Thinking champ) who has had several books published? He may have some useful pointers, contacts or possibly even the inside scoop on who's looking for a book like yours.

Alternatively, there's always PubRants, a blog from a literary agent, whose "Blog Pitch" section has advice about getting a literary agent, who might be able to help you here. The agent specialises in young adult fantasy lit, so not quite your sort of thing, but the principles are sound. (Not sure who a suitable agent for you would be, but I'm pretty sure that Simon Singh uses - or at least used - Christopher Little, like J. K. Rowling.)
