Unbelievable! How many times have I read:
Sorry but I just don't love it enough
This is unsuitable for our list
We have kept your details for future reference
We wish you luck in placing your book elsewhere
But last week I checked my iPhone mail and read:
We would like to offer a contract of publication
Whaaat! I nearly fell off my iron chair into the gravel and dropped my Campari! It was written in English, too! I had to read it aloud to the mate next to me and she confirmed we were speaking the same language. Amazing Grace!
I have been bubbling for 10 days now, have posted off the contract and hope this will pan out to be a beautiful project. I can't wait to see Marilyn in her new printed life!
