4/27/16: Passed didn't connect with it.

I met Caryn Wiseman at a workshop and was able to participate in her critique group. She's wonderful! Very nice personalized rejection.

It turns out Caryn never received my MS! She dropped everything to read it on the spot last night. After reading the whole thing and making some very nice comments, she ended up stepping aside as she wasn't "head over heels in love." What a class act. Anyone would be lucky to work with her!

The requested pages came from her assistant Alison, who was intrigued by my story but wanted to see more pages before she requested the full. Fingers crossed!

oops I never updated this! Caryn gently passed but said she had no doubt this book would make it on shelves as it was "poignant" and "beautifully written" :-)
