A mass market publisher has requested a full manuscript from me. I received a letter in the mail, and expecting a reject, waited to open it until after I had my lunch. I should have known better. The letter was sent in a company envelope, not the SASE I’d sent. So, anyway, I’m currently printing the manuscript for a read-through. I’m nervous about what I might find within the pages of my story. What broken prose, what flat characters. It’s my first completed novel, and I haven’t looked at it in some time.
Wish me luck.
