Notable Quotes

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
--Isaac Asimov

Excellent blog, Heather. And a happy belated birthday, eh?

I know what you mean about buying books new. So many of them have a short shelf life, and there's so much effort that goes into getting one published.
