The New Year has started out extremely well for us here at the manor! On day one, the VP of a major publishing company contacted me to request one of my manuscripts for a reading. On day two, there was some fast movement to organize a trip to the UK for follow-up research for this book. On day three, there was a correspondence from a literary fellowship in the UK that will be giving us a complimentary tour of the area in which we are interested, and we will be lodging in the historical manor of the literary person of interest! Day four, we found coverage for the manor house and pets for that time period we will be away! Go on, 2013, make our days!!!
