Sorry for being out of touch for a while. I feel like Alice racing along with her feet not touching the ground, and am quite surprised to find that I am still (almost) where I started.

Maybe things have moved on just round the corner, though - I hope so. There has been some movie interest in the book, and discussions are going on there. Some of my children's fiction has also been picked up by an editor, and discussions are going on there. And, most of all, Haus and St. Martins have started to move on my manuscript.

Been diverting myself by reading my agent's comments on how NOT to write a query letter.
