You're a dashed liar.
None of these posts were about writhing.
Oh, wait, perhaps a few of them were....
Or maybe I should just clean my glasses...

Having put two novels in a drawer, I know what you mean.

This third one will be the one.

Egads, the second novel one and the asking a published author to read one RESOUNDED BIGTIME!! Especially this, from the latter:"...I can tell you they feel pressured all the time and while they may want to help, it's not always realistic for them to do so..."

When I clicked on "launching a book" it went to a "this page doesn't exist" notice.

As always, thanks, Jon!

Thanks for the headsup, Terri.

Elizabeth's post appears on my Google Reader, but not on her website. I'll check on it later, but I'm thinking she probably just took it down to tweak it a little.
