This made my day
- Do you ever read authors' interviews on various blogs or review sites? If so, I'd love to
know what you think of this one.
I'm told that some readers pay more attention to interviews than to reviews. I don't know
whether or not that is true, but I do know that an electronic interview takes me the best

to collect my child from school, I forgot to scoop up the credit cards and ids (set aside for
when Vistaprint got its act together) and off I went, only to discover my error when the
Kroger supermarket wouldn't accept a check for $30 for absolute necessities, since I had
no id and no other way to pay.
Thus, it was really wonderful to discover Lynda's appreciative email. I do hope her blog
gets lots of hits and comments. Her blog is First Sale stories and is targeted at people
who are trying to break into publishing.
