For the writers: I love this post by Bob Mayer! Talk about smacking me upside the head with reality. I always make excuses for why I get good things when I get them. Just yesterday, when I found out that The Prince's Royal Concubine was a Top Pick from RT for the month of June, I emailed my pal Kimberly Lang and said how excited I was — and then I made an excuse for why it happened this time, as if it was due to the concurrences of planetary alignments, eclipses, the bad winter, etc, and nothing at all to do with the story I wrote.
Don't worry, she promptly emailed me back and told me to stop being so silly and of course it was because the book deserved it. 😉 Sometimes you need friends to smack you with the clue stick.
I hope you enjoy the post! See how many of the signs you have. I had 11 out of 13. I'll probably always think I could have done a better job, but I think that's normal. 🙂 Let me know what you think about that post! I'm off to lunch with the fabulous Kimberly Lang right now, so will be back later……
Wow! Very interesting. I scored 12 out of 13 and only because I don’t have an agent yet. LOL!
For the record, you have earned every acolade you’re receiving, Lynn. You’ve worked hard and through some really rough times. Enjoy this wonderful euphoria! Well deserved, my friend. 🙂
Thanks, Kathy. The support of friends makes the tough times better. 🙂
And a very productive lunch as well, 😉
Don’t forget yummy. 🙂
