Some of you may recall my entry for Pop-Up Submissions on 13th October 2019. Our very own Carol Rose and author Allan Boroughs sat on the panel that evening with Agent Pete. They all gave Secret of Heathcote Manor the thumbs up and it was voted the overall winner. It is with great pleasure that I'm able to announce that I have accepted an offer of representation in respect of this tale from Cindy Bullard at Birch Literary. My thanks to everyone on both the panel and in the chat room who said nice things about my entry. It provided the motivation I needed to get the thing finished and begin querying.
