Back In The Race

Well, who would have thought that events would change so quickly? From deep disappointment on Thursday I had a lovely surprise yesterday. The agent, it seemed, had given both me and my book a second thought and concluded she was reluctant to let me go. When I screwed up my courage and phoned her I was greeted with warmth, praise and generous advice. The result is that I actually feel much happier about the direction I’ve been advised to go in, to aim, as she so succinctly put it, for a ‘substantial meal’ instead of a ‘tasty light lunch’. There are no guarantees of course, but all I can do is try.

That's wonderful, Chris. You're right about the guarantees, but one thing is that if you don't try, you'll never get where you want to go. =o)

It's tricky isn't it Chris to know how to make those choices? - glad you are happy with your future direction - hope it all goes really well for you.

Fantastic, brilliant, wonderful!! Good for you. Just to get a positive from an agent is a feat in itself. They are sooooo busy and inundated with manuscripts so you have done really well. Treat yourself!
