Read "How a rejection got me a book deal: My career-changing SCBWI Summer Conference experience" by Debbie Ridpath Ohi.
Remember Debbie? She did that awesome comic strip of me in my office during my blog tour for Soap, soap, soap ~ Jabón, jabón, jabón.
Debbie has been entertaining us for years with her Inkygirl writing-related cartoons (among others) and I've been cheering for her for a long time. Well, she's finally landed a picture book contract - yay! It's a good feeling when a good person succeeds!!!
