If you're a member of ACFW or The Writers View, you've probably heard Terry Whalin mention his Amazon short Straight Talk from an Editor, 18 Keys to Rejection Proof Submission. As Crystal Miller said at the Chat N Chew Cafe it's a steal of a deal for 49 cents. I downloaded it earlier today, and it is loaded with great information and good reminders. So check it out!
Writers....Interrupted has several posts this week you should check out. Yesterday was the November edition of the blog carnival. It contains links to great writing posts around the blogosphere. And today Tina Forkner is the guest blogger with great insight on what happens after you get the call (with a contract). And it's a Tuesday, so I'm the guest blogger at Generation NeXt Parenting talking about putting Christ back in Christmas for our kids. Check it out and leave a comment about what you do with your families.
Today I got the background sheet to fill out for the cover of my book! Can you hear my shriek! It was so fun to start it and insert photos of the North Platte Canteen. I am really curious to see what the publisher comes up with for a cover. I have an image in my head but have no idea if it will match reality.
And I'm furiously working on the two follow-up proposals. I have personal goals to get one submitted this week, with the second submitted by December 15. Pray for me, please! I'll tell you more about them after I get them submitted.
