    A great post about endurance and weathering the writing/publishing storm, Christina.  Very encouraging!  Good luck to you!

    I recently took back my book from a publisher and redid it myself. Just so I can have the control of everything as the publisher seemed to be doing nothing. My target is 20 years to be an overnight success.  wish me luck.

    Kamy, I applaud your rational fearlessness and good manners in the face of David LeShay's condesending tone, typos, and careless, faux-intimate lowercase form -- as if your valid objections and questions aren't worthy of the time and thought it...
