Yesterday I heard from an agent to whom I’d sent samples of Children of the Resolution. The rest of the manuscript has been requested and I was informed that she had been “utterly absorbed” by what she had read so far.
Naturally, it’s too early to draw any conclusions from this and I’m trying not to get my hopes up. I’ve done this too many times — and I therefore won’t be happy until I’ve heard her final response/decision.
It is, however, satisfying to know that someone within the industry seems to have “got” at least part of what I’m trying to achieve with Children.
Utterly absorbed is good. I can live with that 😉
