Corrospondence w/ an Editor fm Viking

This is very exciting. I’m sending Franklin off to an editor at Viking, an editor that remembered me, and has one of my illustrations posted on her bulletin board!!!!! This is a very good sign. Cross your fingers and wish me luck!

Thanks Xxxxxx!

I’m flattered that you still have my doggie posted up on your bulletin board. I’ll send you the story and dummy book for Franklin tomorrow, so you should receive it by early next week. If for some reason you do not receive the package please let me know and I will be more then happy to resend another one.

Thanks Again,
