It began with a single, exclusive submission to a top agent on May 1 and a request for a full within 12 hours. Five months, two manuscripts and two revisions later, my dreams of a wonderful client/agent relationship ended on October 15 with this email:
“sorry but this story is still not working: it meanders and the plot loses tension..i am afraid it is time to bow out.”
WIth that I resubbed my revised, possibly meadering, MG back to a small publisher where it had been read in its original and been returned with an offer for a second look. And began looking for a home for my contemporary YA book and newest project, a contemporary MG adventure story.
