CONF 599: NEW REJECTION

.

Well, after several months the latest rejection from the publisher is in. Though they liked the character, the structure and felt the book had a lot of heart, it wasn't right for them at this time.

The good news is my agent is going to continue to look for opportunities for it, and, bearing in mind in today's climate, that has softened the blow. Still a blow, though.

On a happier note, have sold an extract of my new non-fiction book to a fab new website. They've now made it into the most brilliant eBook. They're really pleased with the content and I'm really pleased with the way they've presented it. It's going to be offered to all new subscribers as a free download. Whether that's for a limited period yet, I don't know, but will let you know when that happens.

Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.

CONF 598: MORE BIRD



Still no news from my agent. It has to be a no by now, though I have heard stranger tales of long submissions. Whatever it's quite good to have a smidgen of hope flying whilst I complete the final edits.

Meantime, here's our friendly blackbird doing her odd 'sunning' thing.





And then she started bringing her baby with her. Except now it's grown a bit more she's shooing it away! Nature eh?



Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.
