I’m right there with you. I keep writing. And reading. And sending to agents. I love to write. That’s what I do. But some validation would be nice. I even got myself and my novels on TV — Good Morning Texas — and I thought that would rocket me to fame. Apparently someone forgot to light the match. Good luck to you, Charlie. The truth is shining and it shines through in your writing. You have a good clear voice and an appealing style. That’s winning. The book deal people just haven’t caught up with you yet.
