I heard a joke a while ago that when you are a writer you have to let everyone know so you can talk about your books with them....
"I'd like a quarterpounder with cheese and did you know I'm a writer?" was how it went.
Well everyone around me knows that I write, I don't do it on purpose but I end up telling everyone. Well today it might have paid off. My biological mom has read the first few chapters of my work in progress and loves it. Well she has a friend who is a publisher for a small publishing co. in Ut. He mainly deals with non fiction, but my mom told him about my MS and how much she liked it. He asked her when she could get him a copy of it.
So here I go today to the Post Office with a 334 pg. printed copy of my MS now polished till it shines! (dont even ask me how stupid my printer was being last night!)
I am taking a deep breath and walking out the door as soon as I hit send.
Wish me luck!!!
