Feeling rather grotty today (though I am on antibiotics and improving), I awoke to find some promising news in my mailbox concerning The Realm of the Hungry Ghosts. It has been under consideration with an American independent for a while now (not sure what the etiquette is regarding mentioning names at this stage, so won’t) and this morning I heard from their Acquisitions Editor apologising for the delay and informing me that “I have finished reading your novel and if you are still seeking a publisher I will pass it on to our two other readers with a recommendation” and that he “certainly enjoyed the book and [he thinks] there is a market for it.”
Unanimity is required, so it could still be a no. But it cheered me in my moment of need 😉
Cross anything you might have that’s crossable, please.
