    Congratulations on the publication of your story! I just read it and was moved by it. You evoked the nineteen-sixties perfectly.

    Just have to say I adored the piece you wrote, Steven. Really really rich, vivid and beautiful. My favourite part was ‘it broke her heart in a way that made everything real’ – you convey real feeling in those words, I almost felt it was me.

    Congrats, Steven. What a wonderful piece from Birdie’s perceptive pov. I was entranced, as always. I’m excited about Suzanne’s new site and the submissions she’s already receiving.

    Thank you. Sometimes shyness, sometimes uncertainty.
