I really love a bit of positive feedback and yesterday I received this wonderful email from the folks at Penguin publishers about my book Invisible.

Dear Cecily,

Thank you for sending us your beautiful story. Another editor and I have read Invisible now and we both really liked it. Of course, there are many factors to consider so we have passed your submission to a publisher to see and we will hopefully have a response for you soon.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Best wishes,

PENGUIN editorial assistant

Even if the publisher decides against publishing it, I still feel good knowing that it was up to standard, and worthy of a second or third look. It might get picked up yet!
