Hello all my dear friends! I followed some heartfelt advice the other day by Ringo... and the outcome has me so excited I feel like I'm walking on thin air.

I went ahead on thursday and filled out a description for my book of poetry that I want to publish and then I sent it in to publish America.
The next day I had a letter from them asking for my manuscript.

I sent my manuscript in on Monday morning!

Today  I got my letter back from them!

"Dear Ms. Cantrell:

I am happy to inform you that PublishAmerica has decided to give your book the chance it deserves. We are offering to publish "Reflective Journey's"."

So here I fall into rank, and start the process of publishing my book!

HEY ,that's GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!

And you were nervous about it. I wonder if there is a record for most people on a website to make it to the Best Seller List??

Nervous, I can name 3 conversations with you alone that involved, I can't. I'm not worthy of. Its not gonna happen!.... and if I kept that attitude, I am sure thats what it would have been! BUT I changed my attitude and my outcome was good!


As far as setting a record.... no but it just goes to show the fruit that Ron has allowed to blossom and grow over the years and that he has brought in many talented artists! I think he deserves some credit... without him none of us would be where we are today.. or at least not in the same fashion.

TY for all of your support! Although in light of recent information I found courtesy the bad business bureau, I will not be publishing a book at this time.

Kellie, I'm still excited for you.  Please don't be disheartened.  You've improved your attitude, you know you have a support team and you're a polished writer.  I'd say that's doing just great!  Smile and keep writing.

WooHoo!!! You go girl.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Ty Sunshine! This is very much a rollercoaster ride. I've found that the company is devilish and I've also found that it is very very angelic.

Based on current research I have decided to do a few things. Sending all the infomation I have received from them to a Lawyer and having my lawyer advise me on what to do next.

I'd love to have a book. I am very thankful for all of the support I have received from all of you! TY also for the emails helping give me more insight!
