*Not* Letting Go

I thinks the gods heard my plaintive post earlier this week about letting go and have mercifully replied because it seems I won’t have to let Bastien and Ana go after all (scroll down or click here).

Yes my lovely blog pals and readers, I’ve heard from the Editor. IN JUST NINE DAYS! I’m sure people have heard back quicker than this but considering I was bedding down for a long, long wait (I gave myself six months minimum), you can imagine my shock when I opened my email on Wednesday to find an email from the editor. She wants revisions *small sigh*. But these are totally doable and even better, she gave some lovely examples of how the ms can be improved! I love that!!

So I have my lovely Bastien and Ana back for at least a month (I have a deadline, people!) before I have to say goodbye again, but believing they’ll be going back shinier, happier and even more in love than they already are is giving me a great boost!

Wish me luck my friends because I need all the help I can get.
