A leap towards publishing my first novel?

So, I’m feeling a little dizzy. I have had some lovely feedback and advice from a publisher and I now have an agent. I can’t tell you how exciting this is. It is as if I’ve been given validation as a writer. When I made that leap from factual, journalistic writing into fiction with a  Second World War novel, I found it terrifying. I was without my safety blanket of facts. The way I got round that was to go to meet wonderful WAAFs who shared their amazing stories with me. I used real stories that I tracked down in museums, libraries and on the net and hey presto, I had a narrative with credible scenarios.

I have a long way to go and certainly a huge amount to learn but suddenly, I feel that being published is an actual possibility.

I am looking forward to getting it right and am reading advice, listening to my very experienced agent and reading other novelists who have sussed it out already. You may have to share my journey with me. I don’t want to do it alone…..
