It's hard to believe, but this is IT. I have the most fantastic agent who is right behind my novel.

It's time to say goodbye to my old pen name. My biog is up on the agency website and I'm being announced loud and clear under my real name.

Amanda's days are numbered too. I don't want to let her go just yet though. She's been through a lot. The London Book Fair starts on Monday, I will know one way or the other in the next couple of weeks.

Give me a few more days to get used to being me.

Congrats on the agent! Great news.

I'll miss 'Amanda' when she goes. It's been great following your journey (God I hate that word) back to publication. Really inspiring too.

Hi Amanda, it's Angie here, we emailed one another a few months ago. Your news is the just the best ever and I wanted to send you my heartfelt congratulations. You really deserve this. Fingers crossed for the LBF! Very best wishes. Angie.

Amanda Mann said...

Thank you all! Your support has meant such a lot. I can hardly breathe at the moment, as we all know only too well there are no guarantees. I will only too gladly be letting you know if it happens, Yvonne, but at the moment it's still speculation and fingers crossed time.
