Cowart's Common Room

Hello everyone... I'm looking for a quiet button but there isn't one. Anyway, although I can't give any details just yet and I'm still in an utter daze I just wanted to say that all the purple vibes and finger-crossed cauldron stirring have worked. Erm... I have been offered a publishing contract for my novel. I promise I'll tell you all about it when I can. Many thanks to you all for so much support and so many good wishes.
