It's a funny old game, innit?
Life I mean.
Yesterday I was the beetle at the bottom of the dunghill, looking up at the inconquerable heights of literary success.
Well today I'm at the top of the heap with only a couple of pieces of poo between me and the summit.
That's right, somebody wants to publish my book!!!
GASP, CHOKE, SPLUTTER !!!!
Not thirty minutes after the crippling slap of my last rejection, my old mate Tee, (of THAT synopsis fame) gave me a swift kick up the butt and told me to get in touch with youwriteon.com.
Apparently they're printing people who have a book ready.
Steadying myself for another round of aspiration denial I sent a mail off, introducing myself and putting down a fifty (yes, fifty as in 50) word synopsis.
Fifty word synopsis.
Do you remember the agony and torment of the one page synopsis?
Well fifty words to portray the entire book was ridiculous to say the least. However I wittled it down to forty nine words and a couple of punctuation marks and sent it off.
Today I recieved one of the nicest shocks of my life, they want to print it !!!
