This time from Elinor Cooper at A P Watt Ltd. However, she did offer some positive, constructive comments, which was a first. Her comments centred mainly on the opening and not cutting to the chase fast enough.
Done and done. Six pages have already been cut from the first chapter, most of which is back-story which I should be able to incorporate back in later on, at suitable points. It may be another rejection but it feels as if I'm getting somewhere.
