Hi Rebecca. 

I think that very much depends. You need to make a judgement call ( or get a reliable reader to do it for you) on whether you've really overwritten or if there's enough plot to sustain two books.

Take an honest appraisal of your book. Is there a lot of unnecessary description that goes on for pages? Are there pages of back story that could be woven into the text or cut entirely? These may be indicators you could cut - a lot.

Or you may have a driving, exciting, suspenseful story that just needs to be two.

If it's the latter, though, you may need to restructure to make them work as a duology.

Good luck with it 🙂

Welcome Jane. Love the sound of your novel and good luck with subbing ☺️

Definitely the first one for me. Intrigue and interest and a hint of humour, which sounds like your ms. And the last one definitely sounds sexual ☺️

Thanks for asking, Julie. It was totally crazy! Never made so many bouquets in my life😂. That's it now, though, done the 'big three' floristry events for this season - Christmas, valentine's and M day.  Now just looking forward to spring

That's great advice, Iren. Thanks very much

I do get what Glyn means, but I did get Heather's meaning. Perhaps a slight rewording to clarify?

This starts off as John Grisham and turns into The Prisoner! Really intriguing, Laura

That's a risky plan of hers - those states are sky high!
