Yesterday I received another rejection for my novel Border Line. They are stacking up nicely now.
Last night I found an email from a friend. The subject line read: did you write this??? or where did I HEAR IT?
The text read: “Not even purgatory would feature a sing-along bar in Ljubljana. ”
This is a quote from Border Line, which my friend must have read well over a year ago. He may have remembered the line because he hated or was irritated by it, BUT at least he remembered it. He may even have liked it. I have to hang on to all forms of encouragement.
