Yes. That's exactly what happened to me tonight. Completely out of the blue, I got an email from a friend of mine who's a multi-published author and editor for a book club in which I aspire to be published. I've already had her husband (also an editor) request the work and he's reviewing one book. Waiting to hear on that. He warned me last year that if I didn't get him what he requested, he'd send his wife after me. *g*
The email today was short and to the point. She asked how things are going with me. I wrote back and gave her the reader's digest version about my job update and how it's allowing me time to schedule my writing and get back into a routine. Then, I asked about her upcoming books this year and thanked her for asking.
A few hours later, I got a reply. She told me she had 3 books coming out this year and said she was glad things were going well and God always knows what He's doing or allowing. Her closing?
"So does this mean you're going to send a contemporary proposal to us?"
Guess he wasn't kidding about sending his wife after me. Good thing I have a rejected novella I can rework into a novel and send their way. I'm not sure I want to know what the next "nudge" will be. LOL!
