Trip to the Post Office

I took a trip to the post office.

I mailed Run, Betty, Run to Pelican Publishing today!

This is the first trip to a publisher for this children's picture book.
I retrieved it from my computer, did a little cutting and editing, and sent it on it's journey.

Run, Betty, Run is about the heroine, Betty Zane. Every West Virginia school child knows about her, but I thought she deserved a little national attention. There are enough books out there about George Washington, Lincoln, Franklin etc., so I wrote about a lesser known Revolutionary War heroine. Now let's hope Pelican likes the idea, too.

And I sent my article out to Good Old Days magazine.

It is about my trips as a child to the old family cemetery with my grandma.
After editing it over and over again, I got it to where I was satisfied with it.

Two down, and lots more to go!

  6. Wow! That's so cool! I wish you lots of luck with it! I hope you'll let us know what happens!

  7. I like to read the Good Old Days magazine. I first saw it a few years ago in the lobby waiting room at Thomas Memorial Hospital. Maybe someday I'll see your article in there. Good Luck! I feel privileged to know such a talented lady.
