Bridge of Sighs and Dreams
Wendy, we’ve all been there. Thanks for sharing a fantastic example of the humor, patience and prevailing positivity required to make a go of freelancing.
There have been times when I feared my profile person would DIE before an interview finally made it to print. The general public has no idea how long many submissions take to make it through the pipeline. At least the magazines who thwarted your publishing victory had a good excuse – folding – for not running your story.
There is a special corner of publishing hell reserved for the worst offenders: magazine editors and publishers who run stories and don’t pay writers as promised. And there is a spacious lounge in heaven for publishers like Angela Hoy and those of her ilk who value, respect and champion ethical practices like paying writers a fair price on time!
Wishing you the best, always, my fellow scribe!

Really fascinating story. I guess that jinx ends now, because there’s no way WritersWeekly is going to fold.

You rock! In other words, are direct and to the point. And, that is what I admire most about my publisher. Well, I also think you are a sweet person and a great mom. I will be sure to check, and double check my manuscript for spelling, punctuation, linguistic errors and all before I submit. Six illustrations to go! YAHOO! PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE.

- Do you want to REALLY keep 100% of your royalties?
- Do you want to REALLY self-publish your book?
- Do you want direct contracts with the world's largest Print on Demand printer as well as Ingram, the world's largest book distributor, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, and any other ebook retailer you choose?
All at a price LOWER than most POD publishers!
