Hi, Daniel,

I just wanted to say hi, and thank you for all the encouragement you gave me a few months ago, when we exchanged some emails after you read my comments in Fat!so?’s gabcafe. I wanted to tell you that I am writing a children’s book now, and that if I ever succeed in getting it published, you will have been a large part of my inspiration, you and a wonderful young man whom I also met in the cafe.

Take care, and I wish you much success with your work.

(I finally found my own copy of The Afterlife Diet in a used book store, after years of difficulty in finding it at the library when I wanted to reread it. About time.)

Talk to you again soon, I hope.

Daniel replies:

I wish you good luck, and here is the only good advice anyone can ever give anyone vis-a-vis getting published:


Postage is cheap, phone calls are relatively cheap. And, as Winston Churchill is said to have said: ""Never give up! Never, never, never give up!""
