Congrats Jenny. They say that "it's a cinch by the inch" and "hard by the yard." So, a partial might mean you are inching your way toward success.

Thanks, everyone. Being realistic, I think it will be weeks before I hear anything more, but it's such a wonderful feeling knowing that an agent and a publisher are looking at your work.

I've just looked up Sourcebooks they seems like a established publisher. Shame I don't have anything to fit their needs.

All ther best with the submission, Jenny.

About half an hour ago, I received another request for a partial - this time from The Steele-Perkins Literary agency.

Brenda, I have to say a huge thank. If it hadn't been for your advice on re-structing chapter one of my manuscript, none of this interest would be possible. I now have three agents and one publisher all interested in reading more.

If you're reading this post, and have suffered rejection in the past, but think you're WIP is worthy of publication, I would recommend Brenda's service and suggest you have your first chapter reviewed by her for a small fee, as I did. It's worth every cent and you certainly won't regret it.

Brenda, you're worth your weight in gold!

Jenny what a great compliment and referral. Brenda's instruction on query letters have also been extremely helpful. There are some real gems in this forum and I am really grateful you guys don't stay hidden away!

Kudos to Jenny on breaking through flower and to Brenda for providing guidance that is producing results! flower

You ladies are walking the talk!

Jenny, I send thanks back to you. What a nice thing to say. Usually my clients prefer anonymity so I keep silent, but it's so wonderful to hear words of praise. We all need them at times. Received request for a partial!! 846271
