    A very easy, informative read. I have not tried the links supplied, but will in the near future. Like the author, I to have several rejections from various houses. Thanks to, we rejected authors have an outlet for our work. None of the advise supplied by the author is new, but a rehash of writer's classes I have taken in the past, and conveniently forgotten. Thanks for memory jarring.
