Good news, relatively speaking. The manuscript has not been rejected by Moody Publishing at this point. It also hasn’t been accepted. That’s because after four long, dragged out months the editor either hasn’t finished looking it over or hasn’t begun. I can’t tell you the relief I felt at realizing no decision has been made yet. Optimism can be sustained when there is still a sliver of possibility. In my book (or rather, for my book), no news really is good news for the time being. Maybe tomorrow I have an email saying “sorry but it’s not what we’re looking for,” maybe I don’t. All I know is that today, I still have a chance for this publishing deal that I want so badly.
