Therese, great story behind the story! The fortune cookie will look great in the acknowledgments. LOL

Mary Marvella

Love the fortune cookie and am so glad it worked. Sounds like a wonderful story!

While you may credit the fortune cookie, Therese, I credit your talent, perseverance and a lifelong dream. Congratulations!

Kathleen Irene Paterka

Therese,

Everything in its own season. That fortune cookie was there at the perfect moment, waiting for you to crack it open ... just like THE LAST WILL OF MOIRA LEAHY needed the perfect time for you to be ready to crack the characters wide open ... and now your dream is coming true.

HOORAY, YOU !!!

All best,

Kathleen

Congratulations! It's very hard to take something we've worked so hard on and then be told "this isn't what you meant to do - what you meant to do is something else. . . " And then to have to rip it asunder - but it sounds as if this was the right thing for you to do!

Anna Louise Lucia

You know, every time I read anything about this book, or about your writing of it, I get a complete goosebumps sensation of magic happening.

I'm so excited for you, Therese, it's just wonderful what you've achieved!

Suzanne

I love this backstory, such great serendipity and perseverance...and I can't wait to read the book.

Can you tell me if the ebook biz of www.darkcastle.com is for real? It looks like they're still developing the site, but the premise looks interesting. Anyway, has anyone here heard of them; and, are they legit? Thanks.

Great to read the background behind the development of your novel. Just shows that it's a hard slog, but if you stick to it (and maybe have the help of a fortune cookie) you can get there :)

You might like to try the following link. It provides guidance, with worked examples, on understanding what the examiner seeks and writing in an academic manner. If in doubt can always ask tutors whether it's advice applies in your discipline and institution.
