This time the green light that has been given is good. Today, I’ve been given the green light by a young reader who was kind enough to read the first chapter of Cat’s Eyes.
The young lady is almost 12 and is an avid reader. She’s the daughter of a writer and I was warned beforehand that she’s VERY fussy. I was nervous, because it’s important to me that young readers connect to the characters straight away and this is the first step in finding out.
She has asked for the rest of the manuscript. That made me feel really good, even though I’m actually feeling unwell today. Let’s hope the rest of the manuscript lives up to her expectations.
