Re: Literary agents

Well my voice is very certainly unique. I'm not sure If I can call myself brilliant. I guess that's for someone else to decide. I have a very original idea and will follow the advice about waiting til I have a finished manuscript. I have a small intro posted in the scrivenings section asking for a c...
