I agree! 'Rovella Starr' is one of those - very rare - books you come across which within the first few pages you are innediately drawn into the amazing, believable characters and Mitchell's gift as a great storyteller.

You are a gifted writer with a huge heart. The moment I became aware of your latest book: 'The Love He Saved' I knew immediately if anyone could write this unique story, and do justice to an amazing man, you are that person.
Naturally, I have just placed an order with a review to follow.

Hello Carol, I know the feeling, but we must remember,at least that is what they say: It's not personal. I say yes, yes, it's personal.
Keep persisting,and your message will reach the right editor and the right audience.

Carol, i love this piece; it is quite inspiring and one can learn a lot in it.
I had friends when health was a hundred percent
I had friends paying mortgage and not low rent
It is beautiful.

The Rejection Slip (Poetry) - 3/18/2012 3:18:09 PM
rejection is hard but what else can we do but what we do? we'll continue to write and perhaps, one day...
thanks for sharing
The Rejection Slip (Poetry) - 3/17/2012 1:04:54 PM
Some of the best books ever written rejected many times. Publishers are primarily interested in making money, not in quality work. And, quality work often doesn't sell over trash that has some notoriety associated with it for other reasons it might have a big readership having nothing to do with the writer or writing.
That's why I like print on demand POD. You can write, edit, format and design your book and then turned over to someone who will print a few copies that you can test out to see if anyone will buy them beside your friends and relatives. Traditional publishing, where thousands of books are printed and shipped out to stores and promoted at that time to try to get them to sell, is going the way of the buggy whip.
Avoid the rejection slip altogether. It's not worth the effort in submission.
The Rejection Slip (Poetry) - 3/16/2012 10:17:51 AM
Great capture of the sting of rejection after hard work. I bet it felt good to write it.
Oh Luv (Poetry) - 12/26/2011 12:54:16 PM

Very interesting writing, Carol. I wonder though if some people will get it. After all the world is changing so fast. I think this piece was thought provoking, and excellent!
Bee Bully Billy (Poetry) - 11/26/2009 5:28:17 PM
Oh gosh ...
Don't you just hate those rich
white guys? So insecure and affected,
and so willing to exploit to look better.
Not a game I play though.
This moved me!
There are phonies everywhere!
But their color is secondary to their intent.

Carol, I am Carol and my real sister is named Sue! She was my protecter as a child, against other children. Luckily mom was beautiful and loving. It was the other children who were mean to me. This one grabbed my attention. Excellent tribute to a sister.
We Are Homeless (Poetry) - 9/28/2008 6:39:25 PM
I am speachless. WOW! A GREAT write!
I have visied many homeless in the prisons.
When they get out they really have no place to go.
I have attened church with the homeless in my town.
They just want love and kindness; they look just like you and me.
They are homeless, some are veterans, some have no family.
They may be homeless, but they still Love the Lord.
They may be homeless, but they still want to be free.
I Love My Sister Carol (Poetry) - 9/14/2008 5:22:51 PM
Wow! A truly emotional write. I commend you for this because I'm sure it was painful to recount these memories of your beloved sister.

Love For My Thug (Poetry) - 8/31/2008 6:28:07 AM
Carol, your upbringing has given you priceless insights and values that have bypassed many. They are the less fortunate. This is another poem from the depths of your caring heart.
You may be the ONLY one who shows him that endless love. It breaks your heart to see one of your own on such a path, but your steadfast love may one day be the key to his redemption.
Love For My Thug (Poetry) - 8/31/2008 12:31:22 AM
