Remember back in my post on 8 December I mentioned getting a full manuscript request from a publisher? (Here if you want to read it). Well, good news has arisen via a follow-up email. The US publisher sent me two pages of detailed feedback: a page describing parts of the story that the reviewer enjoyed as well as a page of points to improve. The acquisitions editor asked that I make some suggested revisions and resubmit the novel to the team.

Exciting or what? I’m definitely thrilled that there is strong interest in my book and that this seems to be more of a bite than a nibble. Here’s hoping my next post on this topic will be even better news. Stay tuned!
