You know the saying about waiting or a bus for a looong time, then three come along at once? This isn’t like that, ha ha. Well, only the waiting part, but finally, I’m happy to report that I’ve heard back on my manuscript! Hippity Yippity Yaayyyy!
In all the scenarios that have replayed in my mind over the last 22 months, getting The Call featured high on the list, of course, as I’m sure it does in every author’s. But my absolute second best scenario was to be asked for revisions, because let’s face it, the only other option would be a big fat, dreaded REJECTION, right?
So imagine my delight when I opened my email this morning to find a note from the editor at Harlequin Mills & Boon. I must confess I didn’t immediately jump for joy. Until I saw the little paperclip next to the subject line. I thought, would the editor send me a rejection as an attachment?
My fingers shook a little as I clicked on the email and that was when I saw the words “Revision Letter”! Cue mini happy dance. Couldn't go the full hog cos I was at work, where happy dancing is generally discouraged :(
So there is it, folks, I have REVISIONS, which means there is still hope for this ms yet! I’ll go into further detail once I’ve read, re-read and digested the 3 pages of *cough*-stinky-*cough* things that are wrong with my ms and how I’m going to fix it.
And if any veterans out there want to throw some advice my way, it’ll be happily received :)
Have a lovely weekend!
