Smile Greetings!

I've been to this website many times and always found the posts to be helpful. I can tell this is a supportive and friendly community. I've finished my middle grade novel and am now looking for an agent to represent it. I look forward to checking out the many wonderful threads you have going, and I'll add my two cents worth when I feel I can contribute something helpful.
