After a few rounds of revisions for my agent, she submitted the manuscript for my young adult novel to several editors.
Unfortunately, they all passed on my work.
However, a few of the editors had kind words and some constructive criticism. At least one expressed an interest in reading the manuscript again if I made revisions.
Guess what I did?
I spent April and May busily revising, revising, revising — early mornings, lunch hours and after work.
Today I sent the whole thing back to my agent for her to read over. We'll see what she thinks.
