"Mary, I sent you an inquiry a month ago and have not even received the courtesy of a reply.  I am very disappointed as I had expected a more supportive response from someone who benefits from a She-Writes presence.  It puts me off She…"

Merry, I'm sorry to say I never received a message from you regarding any sort of publicity/marketing discussion. I don't know where  you sent your inquiry but there's nothing in my SPAM box nor an email never came through, I'm generally spot on in getting back to people...I do apologize for this annoyance but it seems to be out of my control. If there's anything I can do please try the mbisbee.beek@gmail.com email address.

Again apologies.

I just opened the door to the novelist group for you - welcome! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. And we do a live chat every Wednesday; hope you can join us for that!
