Message:Megan: When I read Aoibheann's message I suddenly thought of an idea. How about your Sharon founding a fan club for her favourite football team. She could recruit members and they could be making posters etc. Then perhaps there might be trouble between them and a fan club supporting another football team...

Message:Riona: It was 1957
Mark: It's a good idea, before you start on a story, to think of an exciting adventure - if I were you I would involve the dog in something like tracking a lost child/helping to catch a robber or leading its owner to find buried treasure.
Kristine: Good luck!
Megan: In the dream is Sharon going to be playing football (you'd have to turn her into a boy, wouldn't you?), or is she just watching the match? I think it wouldn't be very interesting just watching a match.
Rebecca: Many thanks for your message - you actually put it on the guestbook for adults - this is the place for children.

Message:Cora: I hadn't thought of that but I'm glad that you pointed it out now! I'm bearing in mind that the chances are very slim, and to be honest I'm not expecting anything much out of this, but if I don't at least try, I know I'll regret it. Haha, I think it's mad that you thought I was an adult. By the way, I'm hoping to send in Chapter Fourteen of "Anywhere But Here" tomorrow.

Message:Kristine: I would prefer if you didn't mention my name. I think it would be a great mistake because it might sound as though I had a hand in writing the story - all I really did was admire and encourage.
I think this is particularly important, because, I must confess, once or twice I have wondered whether perhaps you really were an adult - your writing style is very adult.
No, just be yourself. And remember it's a ten thousand to one chance - even if you were the most wonderful writer in the world. About fifteen publishers turned down JK Rowling

Message:Cora: Here is the paragraph from the cover letter that I mentioned in my first message:

Here is the paragraph:

I myself am currently a Junior Certificate student in County Galway. I have excellent grades in English and have been writing for as far back as I can remember. For the last three years, my writing skills have been guided by celebrated Irish children’s author, Cora Harrison.

Message:Cora: I've had to put off my plans about contacting a publisher concerning "The Apprentice's Right". However, now that the mocks are over, I plan on sending a cover letter sometime this week. I wrote it earlier today, and when I was writing the part where one makes a note of themselves and their writing experience, I was wondering if you would mind very much if I mentioned how you have read my work? I'll send the paragraph to you in a second message because it makes this one too long. I know that it's a lot to ask, and if you're not okay with being mentioned, I don't mind, I just thought that I'd better check first.

Message:Megan: What's Anfield?
I'd be inclined to start at the most exciting bit - watching TV is boring so cut that out.
I can help more when you tell me about Anfield.

Bryan: what's the story about? Is it a mystery? A fantasy where anything can happen? A thriller where the hero is in fear for his life? A relationships story where the story is about friends and enemies. You have to give me some of your ideas otherwise I can't help

Message:Michael: I'm afraid I didn't write 'Goodnight, Mr Tom' - wish I had!
Sarah Patton: Yes, I thought I would include Jane's handicapped brother - I'll see what my editor says.
Grace: As Secret Spy is about a handicapped boy perhaps people don't want to think about that.
Sarah: That is the one thing about the Drumshee that I describe that is not true - though there is one on a farm nearby.
Ryan: The Iron Age fort I describe in Nuala & Her Secret Wolf is absolutely the same as my own - except that there are no houses left in mine - just thousands of stone lying on the ground.
