An introduction

It's hard to write your first blog, but I'll start with a short introduction. I am an aspiring author, well, they say you should call yourself a writer regardless of whether you're published or not, but we will stick to the word aspiring, at least in terms of wanting to be published. I have been writing since eleven years old after reading a western by J.T Edson, and since then I have read numerous books over the years, ranging from horror, old-style mysteries, thrillers, and action-adventure fiction, which I'm now writing.
   I feel my writing has improved since I was in my thirties (I'm now 42), and have shouldered on trying to get an agent, with no luck. Fifty odd rejections so far and I'm still rolling with the punches. I am writing the second book in an archaeological-based action adventure, on the lines of Matthew Reilly, Andy McDermott, and Clive Cussler. It's got plenty of adventure, humor and adrenaline-packed action, so much so that I've taken a breather for a seconds while tapping it out. I'm halfway through the 1st draft, so thing's are looking good.
   My first book in the series will be hopefully out in next April via Amazon, if I don't get an agent by then, which, judging by my literary crystal ball, looks very slim. Anyway, I'll sign off for now - got to return to my writing.
