Today I got a rejection for a board book I wrote. And I learned from another source that technically I should refer to it as a picture book and that the publisher will decide whether to turn it into a board book or print it in hardback. I chalked this up as another rejection experience and sent the book somewhere else!
And then tonight . . . I got some very good news! The editor I queried with my article "Alternative Conception" said they will "try" to work it in with the series they are doing on the same topic I covered! YES! (Even though the "try" part is kind of daunting, it's not a rejection!) Could this be . . . an acceptance? A paying publication? I have to send her a 1-2 sentence bio and a picture of myself. I'll give more details when I have them!
I'm working on an a new article called: "EXERCISING MOMS (The Myth Explored)" and have also been editing Part Two of my novel. :-) Novel number Two is percolating in my mind and I've jotted down some scenes from the beginning and towards the end. I love writing!
