Hi Pete, thank you for voting my submission, ‘The Beating Heart’, as winner yesterday. I very much appreciate the feedback from you, Ali and the chatroom, and will re-write my opening accordingly. I’ll probably re-submit in a few weeks. Leaving the genre off the submission was an unintentional mistake on my part. I watch Pop-Up Submissions most weeks because I find it so helpful. All the best, Liz Brown
