Congratulations (again!) to Moira McKinnon. We just have to relay her email: "I wanted to let you know that 'Cicada' was picked up by Gaby Naher and I now have an offer from Allen&Unwin for publication in 2013.Gaby Naher emailed and said 'I am extremely busy and only reason I am going to read this is because of the quote from Flood manuscripts.' There you go - a breakthrough after all these years."
