Many congratulations on writing a finished book. That in itself is quite something, but I found it felt quite odd, as well. A first draft?

Not a war I know about, that Polish-Russian war, but if war begets war, this one looks like an almost inevitable organic consequence of the Great War.

Welcome, Richard. Congratulations on finishing a book! You'll find lots of advice, and encouragement here. And wine, beer, and a shoulder to cry on when those first reviews and rejections start coming in. Nice to have you with us.

Welcome and congratulations. Now starts the harder part - because it's no fun - query letter, synopsis and querying. Sites like Query Tracker, Published to Death, Agent Connect and Manuscript Wishlist would be helpful in getting a list of agents representing your genre.

Good luck. Lots of it.

Welcome to the Colony, Richard. Congratulations on completing your first novel—and wise of you to set it in 1967, before policing was swamped with forensic technology—something that is the bugbear of my 21st-century detective novels.

As Peggy suggests, typing 'The End' is really the beginning...writing a novel is the easy part, selling it is another matter!

A warm welcome Richard and thank you for calling us talented!

I have written a crime novel which is currently in re-draft being buffed and polished. Good luck with your work and see you around the colony.

Hi Paul thanks for the welcome - and the advice

No, I can't. Hurry up and get a move on.
In Poland, carp is the traditional Christmas meal -- equivalent to turkey or goose in the UK. The scales of the fish are supposed to bring good luck, and older Polish ladies may keep some scales in their bras over the Christmas period. If there is a guest in the house over Christmas, he or she may be presented with these carefully harboured scales.
Look, don't shoot the messenger, okay, I am just passing this on.
