If you have to get a rejection, that’s the kind to get! It sounds terrific and I’d love to read it one day. Good luck with it (and it sounds as though it’s just a matter of time!).

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,
