Just heard from the publisher, the first impression of my manuscript has been positive, so they are going to go through the manuscript more thoroughly now.

I have been invited to an info afternoon next week Wednesday to see what they are all about. I can take a look at the way they work, I can ask questions that I might have.

At that time I will also hear whether they are going to work with me or not.

My book has made it through the initial screening!

Thanks! I'll keep you guys posted of course.

If they back out after all I can always still self publish, but hey.. having a publisher helping you out isn't a bad thing at all!

Good news! I am going to get published.

I have to take a few errors out of the manuscript of course, and they're going to be doing back and forths with me till it's all perfect. But it is gonna happen :D So happy. Got REALLY awesome critiques. :D
