I need someone to hold my hand,
and fix a pot of tea,
seems like the excitements
have a hold on me!

It just goes to show
that good will join the sad,
there are down days as we know,
but today is one of glad!

I know this poem is silly,
and doesn't make any sense
but if you keep on reading,
it really won't seem so dense!

LOL...

My little imp's way of sharing with all of you my bubbles of excitement...and I think the wave of it is just beginning.  Two weeks ago I submitted my manuscript to a publishing house.  I received word today that my book "is going to be given the chance it deserves."

Can anyone feel the grin?

On top of that, my brother is doing MUCH MUCH better...and going into Rehab for a couple of weeks and should be home some time before Christmas...

So, to our Wizard, Ron, and all of the poets here who have been so gracious and loving as to guide me, mentor me, advise and criticize me, thank you!  All of you have added to my literary experiences in the way of growth, given me opportunities to look outside the box, and enhance my education in ways that cannot even be counted...

Thank you!

/s/A newly hatched author

Friend you deserve nothing but the best. And it is coming to you. Much deserved and I pray your brother keeps getting better. Please advise when the book is available!

As always, your brother will remain in my thoughts and prayers.  HUGS YOU

I knew you were writing a book, but never knew what about and what kind. Poems? Proze? Novel?

Anyway, they're right, you deserve to be read by a lot of people out there.
If any chance, I would like to obtain one when it's ready.

I would love to publish my photopoetry some time, but the problem is there's not much of a market overhere for photo's with English poetry. I'm working on my 'Into the Spider's world' booklet at the moment.

CONGRATULATIONS Sunshine, a well deserved reward for a beautiful lady.

No holding your hand dear friend, I wouldn't want to keep you down as I know you are floating right now and with good cause. I'm so happy for you, you deserve it.

  Thank you all!  My manuscript is a novel that, yes!, contains some poetry!  It is a murder-mystery-history piece of fiction, and as all first novels seem to be, has a hint of what I do in real life in it...[that helps] and was about 450 pages or so in submission.  I don't know what the suggestions will be just yet during production editing, but hey...this is my first attempt, and first offer, so I'm eager to learn more, and the first thing I have to do is change the title, as the publishing house already has a book in the works that has a like or similar title....

ACK!  

However, when I submitted the application, I said the title was "tentative" so now I have to dream up something else that will grab your eye when it's on a bookshelf.

And you KNOW I have a thing about titles!  LOL...and right now the bubbles of excitement are in my way and I cannot think of a thing, so everyone please wish me a good night's sleep so I awake with a title on my brain!  

Thank you all...so many of you have nagged me so extremely well in the past...you were almost better than my Mom!  

Love, K

Yes, Mysteria, you most certainly did.  Here I was, going merrily on my way, posting chapter by chapter here on PiP and you said, "hey Stupid!"  LOL...No, you didn't say it quite like that, but you DID encourage me to get it OFF the Internet [Thank you Ron!] and under my own wings until the darn egg finally hatched as a full blown novel...

Now we'll just see if we gave it wings, too!

Thanks for staying on the bandwagon, Mysteria!
