I stumbled across an author's amazing story about the road to getting published. I didn't recognize the name until I got further down through her post. So Merry Christmas to all my buddies struggling right now. I hope this gives you as much encouragement as it did me. It'll happen.

And then again...I hadn't ever heard of La Nora's call story either! It's classic!!!!
