Just a bit. :tongue

It's printed out (gave my poor printer fits tonight) and in its box (*tests weight* *arms fall off*), watching me.

Waiting.

:( Well, I am impressed by the response time (just over two weeks). It was a no, but in a very nice, personal email. Good prose and a sympathetic heroine, but she didn't fall in love with the story as a whole. I have a few notes to work with, so I'll be taking a good, hard look at certain areas.

Improvements for the next request, right? :o

Susan B

Wow--congrats! A giant step--good luck!
