I didn't do a lot of celebrating yesterday. A bit of a flu bug meant postponing my birthday party until a later date. At three years of age, Lexi is all about the party so we will party soon enough. Thanks so much to my friends here for your good wishes. You made my day.

Okay it might not really be breaking news but ....it is for me!
Yesterday I heard from a publisher. It's true!
I had e mailed a query letter conforming to the guidelines outlined on their website. Within hours I heard back, directly from the publisher asking that I forward my full manuscript. I did that and received one more note reminding me how stiff the competition is for the few spots they have available for a novel this year. And, that either way I will likely hear by summer's end.
I do understand the competition however this small exchange made my day. Sometimes reaching out to someone means the world of difference in their world. It might not change the outcome but for an instant you have given them hope.
