$10,000!!! ARE THEY CRAZY!!

I mailed out quite a few queries and proposals on my latest wip. Not much happening (in the way I'd like) but, today, I got an e-mail from a Publisher (Strang). I didn't send them anything, so not quite sure how they found out about me, but they want to publish my book. Before ya'll get too excited, they're proposing a "joint" effort. Ha! It will cost me $10,800. Well, I may not be a financial genius, but even I know that's no deal. The publisher I use now, who is POD, does not charge me a cent, nor do they ask me to "co" do anything. Yes, it is my heart's desire to be with a more "traditional" publisher, and God promises to give me the desires of my heart. Until then, I'll stay small and keep learning the craft. I still laugh when I think of the $10,800 I don't have lying around!

New Adventure

Well, friends, I'm undertaking a new adventure! I'm the ACFW Local Area Coordinator for the Western Phoenix area. I'm excited. A chance to hang out with others who love the written word as much as I do. I'm also a bit nervous, but hey, I taught Sunday School ages 6 to 12 for many years and taught a women's bible study to 19 on sex and marriage. That was interesting! I guess I can handle a small local group, right?
