It could all start with a free book

I just received an email from an editor of a major publishing house in New York, asking for help in promoting the work of a Fil-Am writer’s debut novel and asking, too, if she might have my mailing address so they can send me a copy of the book.

(Pause.)

(Heart: Thump, thump.)

(Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale.)

You see, this isn’t about getting a free book. (Although, for me, a free book would be enough to make my heart cartwheel with joy.) This is about receiving an email from a New York-based editor of a major publishing house, who might someday be able to give me leads when the times comes for me to publish an international book.

A little girl can dream right?

Every journey starts with a single step.
