Special Delivery

After all the excitement with the literary agent for my book a few weeks ago (she passed on the project, by the way), I feel re-energized in my publishing journey. A scholarly press has shown interest in my manuscript! The editor wrote to me and asked me to mail not only sample chapters, but the whole darn thing.

I could barely contain myself at Kinkos when the manager asked whether this was going to a residential address. "Absolutely not!" I said. "It's going to a business. In New York. A publishing house that has shown interest in my book!"

I basically forced him to congratulate me and wish me luck. I feel certain that this man's good energy into the ether will be just the nudge I need.
