My words are tired. I probably need to take a break from writing. Before I do that, here’s an update on my most recent rejections:

I’m happy to report that Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group gave me a nice rejection. A division named Feiwel & Friends said that they reviewed Barefoot on the Sidewalk and “although we thought this had potential to be a moving story … we weren’t drawn to Abby as a character.” They only reviewed the first 5 pages because that’s all I sent to them. But I appreciated their comments and did some revisions based on them.

Boyds Mill Press sent me that dreaded form-slip piece of paper, addressed to “author.” Ahhhhh! But it’s okay. I hadn’t had one of those in a while. I’m okay. Really.

That’s all I’ve got for now. But they’re coming …
