The nosy bugger side of me will direct me over there to see how these folk answered the six questions.

Yeah, some interesting reading. Diferent strokes for different folks it seems. Everyone looks for different things in submissions, which is perhaps the best lesson.

Good post Matt - I'll pop over and nose around a bit when I get a chance.

Looking forward to reading your slot as well.

Regards.

Thanks Matt, interesting stuff. Seems like you've got to catch the right person on the right day to get a foot in the door though!

Matt Hilton said...

Yeah, shows you how subjective it all is. Or lucky.

Glaznost said...

Totally. I just hope that mine land on an interested publisher's desk this year. All this 'nearly there' stuff is starting to drive me a little potty! Is it too much to ask to get to share my stories with everyone and earn a bit of cash in the process? :P

Matt Hilton said...

Nowt wrong with that plan.
