Welcome back and thank you for the cautionary tale of bad publishers. Sorry that happened to you, but glad to see you still have writing plans. Ambitious but do-able I'm sure.

You are so right, Heidi!
There is no beginning or end. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present (unknown)

Money cannot buy happiness but somehow, it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes Benz than it is on a bicycle.

Welcome back, Amanda! So sorry you've had a bad experience with a vanity press - it is always worth reiterating that money should flow towards the author, not the other way round!

But the money has flowed to me, all 12 quid of it over 2 years!   ;)  lol
