Up, Down, and At Peace
Without anything being finalized, it looks like I’ll be self publishing the book.
In the back of my mind, I realized that this was coming, but I had hopes that Kensington Books might pick me up. They are the awesome people who I always describe as “The Cupcake mystery” people. I realize there are other book series they publish, but that’s what I always remember them as.
While they did reject my MS, they gave me some really great feedback, and I was very grateful for that. I love getting feedback, because as a part-time editor (video) I know everything can be improved.
So gentle reader, don’t get discouraged if like me you have a dream project, something you desperately want to see completed. It can happen. It will happen. BELIEVE.
Or as that true hero of dreamers everywhere, Kermit the Frog, said:
"I have a dream too, but it's about singing and dancing and making people happy. It's the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with. And I found a whole group of friends who have the same dream, and that makes us sort of like a family."
Keep the faith dreamers. I’m off to go feed Big Willy, Not Big Willy, and Also Not Big Willy, and then watch some Netflix.
