      I’m wishing you the happiest and healthiest New Year as well, Deborah. Thanks again so very much for your awesome critique and help with the Marilyn story. It was well-received by the editor who had requested the revision…but her team hesitated due to bottom line concerns. But I’m moving forward into 2017 with enthusiasm and several other stories. 😉

      Aw, no. That’s not the news I was hoping for. There are other editors and houses out there; got my fingers crossed for you. Meanwhile, I like the sound of your enthusiasm for the coming year and your other projects. Onward!
