Latest scoop on my middle grade/tween novel is that I contacted the editor/agent who had given me such positive feedback on the first chapter she saw last year. Going on previous form I didn't expect to hear back from her but late one night I checked my emails and there was a message from her asking to see the rest of the manuscript.... making me swear out loud and wake DH!
Cue frantic last minute revisions - undertaken late at night as our eldest daughter was in the middle of her GCSE's and had first shout on the computer. I hadn't replied straight away as I wanted to make sure there were no glaringly obvious errors and she then called me to make sure I'd received her email. How I managed to stop myself from screeching down the phone I'll never know :) Anyway I sent it across to her just over five or so weeks ago ... will post again when I've heard back.
