Sharing this as encouragement to others to hang in there. After three years of basically crickets (but lots of hard work), in this one week I have sold a PB manuscript and learnt that three of my books will soon have Danish editions. Also, this month I picked up work as a Writer in Residence at a local school.
You never know what's around the corner! Feeling very grateful.
