I’m delighted after having a conversation with my literary agent…she loves the new book I submitted and is going to send it out! There’s always the element of doubt when you submit a book: is it just me that finds it amusing? Is it really a good idea or am I just too attached to it to see it’s complete nonsense? And not in a good way. But fortunately she loves it too!
I’m still a fairly new writer, this will be book number 4 (5 including the novel I’m being commissioned to write). I wonder if established authors still have the same doubt when they send manuscripts in and the same relief when they hear the good news?! The book has still got to find a home with a publisher, but it’s at least a very positive and encouraging start.
