I’m so happy when people tell me the book left them wanting to discuss it with others, like in Terry’s review. I would like to clarify the Cinderella story he speaks of: my book was indeed picked out of the slush pile after submitting it to Pan Macmillan’s Manuscript Monday. The agent etc came after. And all up, I’d sent it to eight other publishers before Pan Mac swept me off my feet. So a fairly prolonged Cinderella story.
