Terrible. In the US, if such a situation could occur, it would wind up in court pretty fast.

No such luck here. There are two organisations in this country, both advisory, both voluntary and with no legal standing in a court of law. We could go down the legal route, but we would have to be paid up in full before we do that. I have money, given to me by my mother from our joint account, to pay for the outstanding bill. Others have said "why don't you just withhold the rent until all is sorted?", but if we do that we're just indebted to the value of the rent. I hope to god that John doesn't accept to put the electricity in his name because if he does the other tenants (c)would have issues with him.

Picture Books (PB) / Re: Seeking clarification: How many MS to submit?
« Last post by jjmoo on Yesterday at 04:50 PM »
I think you definitely need more than one MS before you start querying, even if you only query one at a time. I submitted a PB MS to an agent who liked it enough to ask for 4 - 6 other projects from me. I only had 3 polished manuscripts to offer. If an agent does like your PB, they are going to want to see more and you don't want to be in the position where you send back rough work.
