Aw, thanks! Intriguing Seth book description. In case it's like A Suitable Boy, I'll start pumping iron so I can lift it.

Thanks for participating, Austen. Your name was 'in the hat.' The winner was Elyse Elaine who signed up on my FB page. I wish all of you who entered could have won.

My very best wishes to all you teachers (and parents, too) who are meeting the many challenges the coronavirus is posing in educating our children.  :flowers2  You are definitely heroes.

Off Topic Board / Re: We need a better term
« Last post by marla-lesage on Yesterday at 06:28 AM »
I use the term - The 6 Foot Rule.  Because we are Staying at home, but when we need to go out for exercise or essential items we need to follow the 6Ft Rule!

Thank you Julie.

Dustin, your last comment reminded me of a story that I ended up revising 6 or 7 times for Highlights. The charm of the story I'd submitted was lost so I finally went to that original draft and knowing what I knew, did another pass. And it turned out really, really well. Alas, with our critiquing culture, we can lose the heart and soul of a story, we can literally critique a story to death. I recommend you go back to the original--and trust yourself to know how to fix it. Good luck, V.

I had this happen also. Revised the heart right out of a story and had to back up to put it in but as a more knowledgeable writer. I haven't found a market yet, but I love it more again.

I have not had any experience with them. In fact, I have never heard of them. BUT, if they are asking you to pay anything at all, they are NOT a traditional publisher. They are either a "hybrid" press or a vanity press.
