Another encouraging email, posted verbatim without comment.

An email regarding BLACK STRING, from my agent, the esteemed Abigail Samoun, on May 26, 2015. 

Dear Tom,

I'm so glad I had a chance to read this revision before my trip to New York next week because I AM GOING TO PITCH THE HELL OUT OF IT. You have done an extraordinary job on this draft, Mr. Llewellyn. I'm floored. The writing is so much tighter, the narrative is so much more emotionally engaging, the plot fits together so much more logically. I started the book Saturday evening and, despite Tristan using me as a climbing structure and trying everything in his two-year-old bag of tricks to hold his mama's attention, I finished it before the long weekend was over. The attached draft just has a few line edits but overall, there was very little work to be done on it. I am just chomping at the bit to get it out to editors. Thank you for working so hard on this. I'm going to do my darnedest to find the very best home for this one. It deserves it.
