Good news

I can't be specific right now but have had some really good news about my manuscript about the monstrous brutalisation and death of my lovely don...

A journalist has picked up on the manuscript and is very positive about it and how it was written...she is going to trim out the repetitions and typos that i missed in my multiple passes...

Then she is hoping to take it to a major publisher... with an introduction from a close journalist friend of hers.

I have to just hope now...because self publishing is scary re defamation etc...if a publisher picks up my manuscript it would be wonderful.... if not I will still publish...

"as night draws in its not so good."
That's why I'm here: anniversaries are bad days for anyone who has been traumatised.
Just thought I'd swing by and remind you that all your blogpals are out here supporting you - feel the good vibes coming your way.
