Sound advice, Steph.

I have recently finished reading the book The Behaviour of Moths and very much enjoyed it.
It sounds as if I was lucky to get to read it at all if Poppy had not changed her way of contacting publishers.

I guess that, in a way, it was slightly easier for Poppy than your average writer, as she had made documentaries for the BBC among others and was already circulating in a media-related environment. Still, she was trying to go the supposed traditional route which means her work may have never gone to press. She admitted that the few agents who eventually read the novel didn't like it.
