Publishing Wheels Roll Slowly

At least they roll slowly for me. An SASE returned home today with a form letter, no name, no ms. title, so I looked up that publisher to see what I sent, couldn't remember. Well, no wonder. In July, 2007, I sent this editor a query. Heh, heh. The stamp on the envelope should have been a clue. It wasn't the latest stamp. I'm surprised the post office even delivered it. Not to worry though. This particular manuscript sold this summer. I filed the "not interested" letter with the others.

So it's Friday again. Short week. It will be a short weekend too. Tonight I'm working at a fund raiser for our local Friends of the Library. We've just started it and this is our first attempt to raise money. We'll see how it goes. I'm not sure what we're doing. Will find out when I get there. (Can you tell I'm not in charge?)

Saturday, I'm signing copies of Listen to the Ghost at a Paranormal Conference. Speakers from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and I'm not sure where else will be there. It should be fun. Who knows? I might even meet a ghost or two, not counting the one in my story. They're also collecting cans of food for families of soldiers deployed to Iraq and giving away prizes, like an overnight stay at a haunted hotel in nearby Archer City.

Have a great weekend.

Happy reading and writing.
