No News Is Bad News
I've been waiting and waiting for some book news concerning my next collection. Well, the news came today, and it isn't good. I'm really deflated, and a little pissed off. I feel so dumb for getting my hopes up, but if you had heard what you told me . . . . "we just want to be sure your manuscript is still available . . . we'll be in touch the next few day" you would have thought a book deal was coming your way too. I could just puke.
Attention all editors: The next time I am a hair awy from something, just don't even tell me. Let me walk around thinking you threw my book away ten seconds after you took it out of the envelope.
