I'm thankful for a husband who gives me a little kiss before handing me the tell-tale SASE. He smiles and says, "Tough skin, remember?" I smile and say, "Yep."
I'm also thankful that Hubbykins is a great marketer, and if/when I do get published, he will have a marketing plan in full swing pronto. Case in point:
Me: Hubbykins, I want to write children's books.
Hubbykins: Have you checked to see if your domain name is available?
