2. Your encouragement to be a Pub-Subber has led to my signing a contract. I love the process of writing. I hate the process of researching a publisher and sending it out. Strange I know. When I signed up to be a Pub-Subber about two years ago I knew it was what I needed to get me going. Just as you have said so many times, it did lead to something. So that is what I want to tell you I appreciate the most, because nothing would have happened for me if I hadn’t followed the advice.
