Thanks for posting Katie-Ellen. I may once again gather all my hope together, take a deep breathe, and plunge into the rejection chamber...

Thanks for posting @Katie-Ellen Hazeldine

Damn it, 30 k? My first book (which is the shortest) is 3 times that :/ lol Och well... there's always self publishing. I think I am about 12 rejections down now. Giving it till I finish book 5. If I still have no luck then, I'll self publish the lot ;) Thanks for posting though xxx

EDIT: Just checked... it's a minimum of 30K written. OH! Ok, will maybe give it a go then ;)

Hehe cool. Well my original stand alone novel that morphed into 3 then 5 books is now looking like an epic 3 series set of 15 haha! What the hell do you call that... 'Generational Fantasy.'

Still, I'm loving writing it so I can't complain. At least I know where it starts and ends. I'm going to give this a go and submit the first 3 I think :)

Good luck to anyone and everyone. I've had two novels rejected by them, so I won't be trying again. Still waiting on an answer from a publisher, so I can wait, whilst still writing and editing :)

Good luck to all of you that submit! I'll have my fingers crossed for you just as soon as I finish typing this (I tried to type while finger crossing, wasn't too comfortable!). Keep us in the know. :D
