Message:I would love to get an agent, but I'm not sure that I have the money to pay for one...

Message:Conor (continued):
Oh, and I do think your first opening was best. Not point in mentioning this Reuben - he never comes into the story again - just leave that out and start as you did originally.

Message:Best of luck with a publisher or agent – most people go to an agent first – in fact very few publishers look at a book that doesn’t come from an established agent.

Message:Conor (continued)
The weakness in your book is that the scenes where Conor is in danger are not suspenseful - they are over too quickly - they don't keep the reader on the edge of his seat, frantically turning over pages. The fact that you know he will escape should not be betrayed to the reader - they should be much longer and the outcome should be in doubt.

Message:Dear Conor,
I’ve now read your book and I think it’s great – absolutely fantastic.
However, a publisher or agent isn’t going to think: ‘My God; this kid is a genius!’. They are going to ask themselves: Can I make money out of this kid? Is his book going to sell better than the couple of hundred other submissions that I got this week?’

Message:It's all true, Sophie - everything that the 'Two Mad Dogs' do was done by two puppies of mine - everything, that is, except for one thing.

When you've finished the book you might guess what the one thing is. Write and tell me what you think.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:It's been written, Bethan, and it's now being edited - my editor has had it since the beginning of January so I should be getting it back soon with her suggestions for any changes.
This one is all about Poppy and Daisy and how they both find love - with, of course, a lot of obstacles in their way. I hope you enjoy it. It should be out in the summer.

Message:Hi again,
Wow! I have just read "Debutantes". It was so good. Please could you write another one. I would love to read about Violet's wedding and the other girl's seasons. I loved it!

Thank you

Message:Alright, I understand... I'm just eager to send it off, but I'm awaiting your verdict.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:I understand your feelings, Conor, but it is a long book and I do want to read it carefully. If I send a book to my editor it is very seldom read in under a month - usually much longer. I just am very busy at the moment so can make no promises.

Message:Nice to hear from you, Aoife.
I've put your story onto the Story Board. It's sad and moving, but well imagined.

Message:Part 2 should have continued right after the VERY FIRST part I sent you, where it cut off mid sentence.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Have just seen it, Conor.

Have got parts 2, 3, and 4 - but not part one. Nearly there!

Name: Conor
Message:Have you received it? I split it up into 4 parts, like you said.

Name: Conor
Message:Thanks for the compliment :D
I've sent them now, as A New Generation of Heroes: The Beings Part (whichever part I send)

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:I think, Conor, you will have to split it into three, or four, to be safe, sections. Label each clearly so that I can put them all together.
I've talked to my webmaster and that's what he thinks that you should do. I've reassured him that someone like you only comes along every ten years or so!

Message:Only got one, Conor.
It begins with: Rueben knew that he was being chased. It was obvious.
and ends with:
The guard leapt up and smashed a foot down onto Séamus's back and he

Don't hold your breath for my verdict. I'm desperately busy at the moment.
(In the publishing world editors usually take a month before they get back to you, so you will have a taste of what that world is like while you wait for me!)
