    Hello Carla, great to meet you and thanks for stopping by. If you are in the UK have you tried the Writers and Artists yearbook which lists publisher/agent details and requirements in the UK? The following listing is also useful There is a lot of research involved in finding an agent and I also advise not to overlook the smaller and lesser known businesses, which would improve your chances and can also offer many publishing advantages.
    In any case, I wish you the very best of luck with your book!

  3. Hello Carla,

    I’ve spent a most enjoyable day reading The Last Gift, which I will recommend to others. The book was very well written, good pace of delivery, and tugged at the emotions; I admit to shedding a tear in places.

    One short paragraph near the end of the book was outstanding, one of the best I have ever read. The book finished in the correct place; so often authors get this wrong. I look forward to reading your next. I remain very impressed.
    best wishes,
