  1. Catherine - a marvellous interview and what a relief to hear such passion from a publisher about working with authors. Good tip too about reading aloud before submitting to them. Sarah Odedina and Hot Key are ones to work towards, I'd say. Great break for the eyes to be able to listen to an interview. Thanks!

  2. Really good advice and very enjoyable thanks to both of you

  3. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I've tried several times to listen to Sara's interview without success. I just keep getting the soundcloud image but, wherever I click, there's no sound!


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
