Today I received an email from a publisher informing me they had got my manuscript (1st 3 chapters). Is this normal? I only sent the manuscript yesterday. The editor also told me in the email she "likes my stuff" and had tried to phone me (silly me had phone turned off). She went on to say "now it's up to the other guys" (I think meaning co-workers?)...
Excuse my ignorance as I havent had a novel published before, and in the past (when I have sent other manuscripts) all I have received (three months later) are rejection slips and no other contact.
Is this one promising? I'm kinda excited!!
Thanks in advance
