Back in 2011 I decided that I wanted to win this thing called the Varuna Publishers’ Introduction Program. Basically it’s a way to bypass the slush pile and get your manuscript read by an editor at one of the big publishing houses.
So I overcame the crippling fear of rejection and submitted.
And it seems that it worked, I made the shortlist!
My book is there, right under the PanMacmillan heading.
All of the breathing and goat leaping!
