I was just on the verge of being bitter and twisted (again!) when I heard back from Ben Ball and he would be “delighted” to read Bittersweet.
I’ve forwarded his email to my prospective agent and hope this will finally move my ms from mid-slushpile to the very top!
Cross fingers everyone. I have nervous butterflies and he hasn’t even got the ms yet.
Love to all,

Great news! Bonne chance!
Thanks so much Jonathan. Say a few prayers. Used six fortune telling devices yesterday to test the waters and it seems hopeful.
Are you still away?
Yes, still away — in Orléans right now, catching the train to Montpellier by way of Pais bright and early tomorrow.
Hope you’re having a great time Jonathan. The ms has been given a final spit and polish and has been sent express post (by me!) to the man himself. He even said he was excited by the thought of reading it. He is, however, away for a few days, but will get to it when he is back in the office.
HAve a great French holdiay. PAula is off next. She leaves on the 19th
Having an editor excited to read your MS is great news. Now if only the marketing division were excited you could start counting the royalties.
Oh yes, must pray to the marketing gods as well!
