I must apologise for my recent lack of posts. I am currently slogging away at rewrites so that I can get Lord Alexander's Cipher; or, the Bridekirk Behemoth off to a selection of agents before Christmas. I hope that by Sunday I will be able to report that a small stack of padded envelopes is waiting to hit the post office the next day. My plan is to try half a dozen in the first wave, and see what happens.

Heyeroines will return, I promise.

Best of luck with LACotBB, Stephen. I'm looking forward to it.

You might want to hang fire until mid January. I know it's tempting to send a ms off, but agents aren't generally interested in things at this time of year.

Admiring your determination and discipline! But I would echo Amanda; just before Christmas tends not to be good for anyone. And, since there's so much post about, isn't it more likely your packages might go missing? However, you're working to get a big thing (no pun intended, lol) finished and I can see why you're aiming for the end of the year!

Good luck with your submissions and now is as good a time as any to submit according to the agents I've spoken to before.

Good luck, Stephen. And if everyone thinks that now is a bad time to send and hold off, now might be a great time to send!
