FYI the only thing you need to do for a book deal is say “Gimme a book deal.”
Luke Trayser

Ya know, I feel sort of silly admitting it now but, the one thing I haven’t tried, is clicking my heels together three times while screaming at the top of my lungs, “GIMME A GAWDAMN BOOK DEAL (WITH A REASONABLE FIRST-TIME BOOK ADVANCE FROM A REPUTABLE PUBLISHING HOUSE) ALREADY… Please!!” Is that what you meant?

Okay, fine. I HAVE tried it, but I didn’t say “please.”

I know that’s not exactly what you meant. Here’s my genuine response: You made my month. Yours was an incredibly nice thing that I needed to hear. Thank you Luke, sincerely. :)
