The times they are a changing ...

I received a very charming email from Hannah Ferguson, telling me that The Messenger 'despite its qualities' was not something she could deal with. Almost didn't feel like rejection. Onward and upward. I met Danny King the author and sit com writer (Thieves Like Us BBC3) here in cyberspace - great guy, really interesting background. He sent lots of really good personal advice. His site is here: http://www.dannykingbooks.com/advice.html I found his site whilst I was researching Camilla Bolton (Darely Anderson). I saw an interview she did with Byker Books, here: http://bykerbooks.co.uk/camillabolton.aspx - I liked both her comments and style - I believe she is the person to whom I should have sent The Messenger. I like Darley Anderson's bio, too, here:

I had a rejection today too for a small piece, nothing like the scale of yours. Bit of a bummer but 'every cloud' and all that.

The door will open John, we just have to knock a bit louder. Go get 'em boy:)X

Just read Danny's tips, some sound advice there. Checked out his blog as well and he mentions the "Ten Thousand Pictures of You" video. I don't want to spam your blog so maybe give it a Youtube search, it's quite something :) !

Thanks Ed, I'll have a look at it again. I tried before, but it wouldn't run properly. Brilliant day yesterday, mate. Hope you're doing OK.
