You should send the very successful writer a kitten or two. Just leave them on the doorstep in a basket with a note...Perhaps you would like to try writing for PetSmart...since the kid thing isn't really working out. Love, (insert editor with kitten on Facebook page's name)

I’m sorry love, I didn’t want to take anything away from this post but, I have the hiccups.

My photographer husband says cat and dog books are always the no. 1 best-sellers any given year. So DF may have something with this writing for PetSmart thing.
And who the hell wants to hear from a children's book author anyway? please.

I knew you would take my side in this even though the correct answer was: SK, why do you insist on antagonizing successful childrens' book authors? Did Lee Wardlaw teach you nothing?



In my own defense, that email about being too busy for my own good was really only meant to go to that ONE colleague of mine, you know, the one who doesn't take me seriously because I'm a woman, so I really feel good when I can remind him that he does NOT have a book with a great publisher...

oh, wait, I'm not a children's book author at all...

Sorry, Fantasy Me took over. Perhaps Fantasy You should write a response that begins So glad to know I'm not the only one who can't make it due to looming Very Important Deadlines. Now I feel so much less guilty...

Your colleague should be sent a basket of kittens immediately.



You might as well teach them now how to perfect the art of snarky comments because if you don't they will just learn it from someone with a much more limited vocabulary. Then what would you take credit for later??
