Today, I received an e-mail from Meghan Feir, my author’s liaison from my Minnesota State University Moorhead/New Rivers Press editing Team. In her note, she said that FV made her “shed more than a few tears.” I wonder what sections made her cry. Louise’s baby dying? Anna and Louise’s scene during the ship sinking?
Meghan invited me to “friend” her on Facebook so I looked her up and found a video of her playing a song she wrote on the piano. She’s very pretty and very talented. She introduced the rest of the editing team as being Sarah, Kyle, and Christy. I hope, at some point, I get to meet them. It feels odd to me to be working with people without meeting them face-to-face. Welcome to the Twenty-first Century, right? I wonder if they are all writers, if they are all from Minnesota, if they have brothers and sisters, if they’ve ever taken ballet lessons, or if they like the New England Patriots (probably not Patriots fans; so few are outside of New England).
