One day, at the suggestion of my wife, I approached a Canadian publisher, Friesenpress, to inquire about their publishing process.
“So, you wrote a book,” Debbie said to me.
Imagine hearing those words, and what that was like to hear from an industry professional. Admittedly not a submission to a traditional publisher, however, as I’m sure all writers can imagine, the emotional acknowledgement of the achievement (of writing a novel!) from someone uninvolved is surprisingly, well, emotional.
