With renewed confidence with the shorter introductory letter and new opening of Cyprus Blues, I sent the first three chapters to two new agencies, found in The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook 2009, having first checked on their websites that they were still considering new writers.

So it was with dismay that by return of post, my manuscript came back from Rupert Crew Limited, telling me that they had closed their books.

Why didn't they have this information on their website? It is costly sending off manuscripts and time wasting if websites are not up to date.

In future, I shall actually phone up an agency first and not rely on their websites.

But at least they didn't keep the paper clip.
