I heard back from Sara at Inspired Quill yesterday evening, although I only read it this morning. Unfortunately, they aren’t accepting Hidden Fire this time round but the advice she gave was really useful. I’m going to go back and look at...

Che non sono sicure di essersi rialzate.

Con il loro dubbio di essere sbagliate.

I love the humor. The romance. The awkward meet cutes and the even more awkward relationships that follow.

But I also love the feels. Those moments of character growth and realization.

Kate Atkinson Interview with Kate Atkinson
The year is 1940, and Juliet Armstrong is on the trail of Nazi collaborators. Juliet isn't some high-living MI5 femme fatale; the protagonist of Transcription , a new novel by Kate Atkinson, is just an unworldly, if cynical, 18-year-old girl who writes up surveilled sessions between fascist sympathizers. But though she's a minor cog in the war effort among the secret agents and bureaucrats, she's soon pulled into bigger things—events that haunt her years later. ...more
