    Our version of Veterans Day - Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Wikipedia

    I slept all day. I was worried I wouldn't be able to go to sleep when night time came, but I slept soundly all night. I'm still a bit sore and slightly painful today, but I'm up, I'm dressed, and as soon as I've finished with the Forum I'll be off to the kitchen to get tortoise food ready!

    Sorry to hear that you have back pain but I am sure your tortoises do not suffer starvation.;):) They can easily manage some "starvation days".:D

    I want to read "Olive Again". I heard about it on our channel 10 news. I do always try to stay positive but somehow I relate to her. (or maybe I'm related) I hope you get over the flareup soon. I got to watch my little bunny clean her face and ears today. It looks like she's praying when she does it and I don't always get to see it because I'm somewhat busy with mundane things in our home.

    You're welcome. I just know that it's really hard to get through the brick wall that publishers put up. They miss a lot of talent because of that. If you actually get a rejection letter that is considered a compliment for your work. Just mosey along like a tortoise and we all know they can break through walls.

    I have gotten 15 rejection letters from literary agents. I am just now starting to look for publishers who will even accept manuscripts without an agent. It is a long, discouraging and depressing process. Slow and steady...

    Most people don't get a rejection letter from a publisher. There used to be a book at our local library on what specific things each publisher expects for you to submit to get published. It's been a long time ago but I did submit a book to children's press. I actually got a rejection letter and the person told me not to give up. That the US had cut back on subsidies for children's books. Also, your book has photos. Most publishers want their art work instead of yours. Your book wouldn't be complete without the photos. That's why I think you should slowly self publish. Hope you wind up selling a ton of them.
