Just call me Mrs. Havisham....



Yeah, that's me. Mrs. Havisham from Dickens Great Expectations. Sitting in a room, cobwebs collecting about my dusty self, as I wait for an e-publisher to get back to me about a submission I sent in in January.  Its been nine months. In those nine months, I did hear from them once, asking for the whole manuscript.

That's something, right? Not necessarily. I have read accounts on-line of authors getting all excited about having a full MS request, only to be rejected.

It's been so long now, I am past worrying about rejection. Its been so long, I sometimes forget it is still out there in someone's pile.

I find it strange in this day and age, that a digital publisher would take so much time to say yea or nay. It ain't Shakespeare, lol~Hell, its not even Dickens. It has a Christmas theme, so even if it is a yea, its kinda late now for an Xmas release.

I toyed with the idea of pulling it, other big name e-pubs promise faster wait times than this. But its been so long I might as well see this to the bitter end. I've hung in this long.
