I was right, I am glad I was released from my contract. Elaine received an email this morning. The publisher is going out of business.

The good news is I sent an essay into a friend in Toronto who works for a small publisher.

That particular publisher asked for the first 30 pages of my book and then rejected it (no taste whatsoever hahaha!) so I am relieved too Mike!!

[Presume the publisher's name is linked to marsupials?!!]

You have had a lucky escape.

Good luck with the essay and I hope Elaine finds another publisher quickly.

I presume this is why the publisher released you from your contract as they knew they were going out of business.

Good luck with the essay with the new publisher.

Even though it was a growth experience, sounds like you were divinely protected. Hope this works better.

Lucky escape Mikey! It will all work out fine I'm sure.

Thanx folks, it will work out fine. Yes, I seem to have been protected by something out there. It helps when you follow the flow.
