Abby's Mom, I agree with you about not sharing cat stories unless they love cats. Most people I know love dogs and hate cats. My MIL taught all her kids that the cat sees the devil and that family always had nothing but dobies. I am very terrified of dobies. They are killer dogs. I am afraid of dogs except for toys and teacups. Only two of her kids have cats, our's and the brother who gave us this kitten. But that brother told me last night that he hates cats. He only deals with them since his girlfriend is a cat lover.
Ok, the answer about where is that thread about the home help. I never started that thread. I am sorry to say that I hijacked it. It was a thread started by someone else here who uses home help and I put in my opinion on it and then told my story and that is when that thread ended.
Yosemite, The answers to your questions about writing to agent and book signings is when I had replied to someone who is on page one of this thread. She mentioned if I want to contact a writer, I should write the agent. Now the You Tube and pics about Avalon, I somehow got the impression that no one here was interested. Just like I wasted that writer's time, I don't want to waste the time of anyone here.
Utopia, I do regret making contact with that writer. Yes, she gave me the impression that she honestly does not like cats which made it contradictory to her novels since her main character owns a cat and then across the street from the main character; her neighbor takes care of the ferals.
Thanks everyone for the honesty and I know that no one here attacked me. I hope I don't sound like I attacked anyone and if I did, I apologize. I think business should be done in a frank and honest manner.
