I’m trying to stifle my excitement. I spent time in late spring going through my novella based on my mother’s life, and sent it off to a few small publishers — suggesting that although I didn’t write it as young adult, perhaps it is.
Today Ink Smith Publishing wrote: “We have reviewed your work [the first 50 pages I’d sent] and we are excited to read the manuscript. We want to read your story in its entirety to see the polished work. . . . Please send. . . ”
Needless to say, it’s on its way. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
