    Hi Spangles, here's the dateline of the original email from WordCloud: 10 February 2009 20:27. Can I ask why you want to know the time? I'm intrigued.

    What? What did I do? (Puts on injured expression.) Sorry, you must have had the same comment loads of times before, but I couldn't resist.

    I see Rebecca is on form! She has a point though, you should really have had it ready to go when they approached you in a panic. Tut-tut:p

    Spangles, that's insane! Using the same material twice and not being noticed by the publisher or a reader! I hope she's learnt her lesson anyway. I couldn't imagine ever being in that position and doing that. Is the author who can't write very ...

    But with a Fortune Teller's Bible, wouldn't *you* have known exactly how long you'd get, being an expert and all? :D

About

I sometimes ask myself what I'd do if I didn't earn my living from writing and editing books, and I have yet to find a satisfactory answer. So I'm very grateful to be a published author. So far, it's my non-fiction that's been published but I've set myself the goal of getting a publishing contract for some fiction by the end of this year. (Did you hear me, Universe?)

    Spangles, that's insane! Using the same material twice and not being noticed by the publisher or a reader! I hope she's learnt her lesson anyway. I couldn't imagine ever being in that position and doing that.

    Is the author who can't write very knowledgeable in their field then, to be tolerated?

    No harm to your husband, but HA! Go cat, 1-0 to you today:-)

    A Fortune Teller's Bible in six weeks? Were you supposed to rest in the Seventh week? Ha, sorry. Sounds like you're well-thought of to be asked to do such projects, but someone seriously just dumped a lot of their first book into their second? Do you know if they'll be getting a thrid book published?

    Yes, I think the snow is a bit annoying for cats, it's raining here today so I expect to see a lot less of him once it clears up:-(
