You Never Know Whose Eyes Are Watching!

For those of you who think nobody looks at our blog except a couple of us local FWA-ers, guess again. The following response came after I posted the brief blurb about the current Writer's Digest issue that focuses on self-publishing:

"Dear Russ,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the kind recommendation of our March/April issue to the FWA Sarasota Writers Group. I came across your post on fwasarasota.blogspot.com, and was so happy to hear that you found it informative and that it provided the kind of overview we were aiming to deliver!"

The note was signed:

So ... a word to the wise: One never knows WHOSE eyes are watching! So send in those submissions!
