Subject: [DWJ] Off-topic Note: Nice News

Hello everyone!

I have a small, sweet piece of news that I had to share with you all, because I think you'll understand how much it means. I write fantasy myself, mostly for children, and I have a literary agent who is submitting one of my novels to publishers. Today I got the nicest "no" I've ever heard, from Diane Landolf of Random House. Among other things, she said, "This is possibly the first submission I’ve ever read that I think really does deserve its comparison to Diana Wynne Jones."

I teared up. Hard to find better praise than that!

Best to all,

- Nic
