News Flash

Remember I mentioned some time ago I had been asked for my complete manuscript? This week I decided nothing was going to happen and checked that it was OK to try elsewhere.  Just heard that it has been short listed out of 5,000 which is another step forward.  Trying not to think of the usual two steps backward.

If this falls by the wayside I WILL keep trying.  As you are my witness.
