Thanks Bob and hi group!

I am unpublished but just finishing up my first novel.  It is a suspense drama.  I have had a short story get an honorable mention in Writer's Journal a few years back.  I took to writing as a hobby a few years ago and have a series that i am working on.  I am ready to develop query letter and synopsis and find and agent/publisher on this first novel.  I read mostly psych thriller like Val McDermid, Dennis Lehane, Karin Slaughter but also throw in a lot of Stephen King, Dean Koontz and have tried several other popular authors in the genre.

I am hoping your site can answer some questions along the way - the formatting of the manuscript and some basic police techniques as well.  It is nice to have a group to discuss with. I've taken several courses live but where i live the best i can hope for in meeting other writers is romance and while nice, they don't tend to get my stuff...which can be kind of graphic at times.  Hopefully i won't scare anyone here away.

Hi Danni and welcome. Don't be shy about throwing out your questions. You'll find this group will answer. There are members who are experts in many fields and you'll not find a nicer online group to join. Good luck with your first novel.
