So here are couple more useful links for my fellow writer friends, and some more knowledge for those who care to know it:
I feel a lot better in reading these blogs, I actually feel like I know a little more... AND I have a new publisher to look in to.
But seeing as I haven't heard back from Penguin at this point (and seeing as it's been four months since I sent them my manuscript), I figured I'd redraft my novel, Evergreen: A Fallen Star, and then send it into Allen & Unwin - The Friday Pitch for assessment and another shot at getting published... I'm also going to work on getting an agent to help me out.
Wish me luck everybody! Bon voyage!
