The agent, (still not technically MY agent, until we have a contract,) has suggested Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as a possible author to read and blurb my book. Turns out he has two novels to his credit starring Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock's older and smarter brother. I would love to meet him in person.
I have decided to become more active on my blog, posting things I have discovered that didn't make it into the book, books I am reading now to improve my writing, or to feature the latest on authors who have helped me. Right now they can help me FAR more than I they, but it seems only fair. It also may give you the insight into how my current book came into being, as these will all be authors who have influenced me.
Below is the link to Kareem's book site. A rather large repertoire, I should say eclectic, much as the man himself. I have ordered the first Mycroft book, and will let you know my impressions once I have read it.
