    Purchased an adapter on my way home. Thanks for all the great conversations, and for saving my phone. :-)

    You're welcome. I'm sure with a bit of practice you'll be as good at it as a man - or close anyway.

    ^^D Aww, shucks - thanks! I've just invited you to the new DS group (although the new opening chapters are there, they are a bit of a mess as they are the WIPs... sorry about that!). I ended up cutting around 10,000 words just out of the first 7 chapters. Amazing what you think you need, then after leaving it for 6 months, you discover you just don't... O_o

    Jane - thank you so much. One thing that has made all of this so much easier to deal with is the support of lovely Cloudies like you :-) xx A facebook friend of mine also said that this particular agent is one of the biggies, and so he probably only takes on one or two new clients on a year, which kind of put it all in perspective. I think I might try a few more agents with this new version (which is far better than the version you read!!) and then if I still have no luck, try some small presses. After all, it's not as if I haven't had luck with those in the past! ^^p xxxxx
