Yesterday, after e-mailing and sending some messages back and forth online, I received a phone call from a local author and publisher. I had sent him a .PDF file of my manuscript. We talked for a little under an hour: him singing praises about my poetry collection, telling me his favorites. Ones that spoke to him. I explained the manuscript as a whole, some of the more obscure titles, and I was under the impression I was just chatting with a fellow writer about the craft. Instead, I hung up the phone with potentially great news.
Stay tuned, you guys!
