Yes, in fairy land perhaps. But in real life, they tend to take the clients they can make money out of. Sorry, I'm not attacking you, I'm just saying how it works.

Have you looked at the best sellers list recently? Jordan and Jeremy Clarkson and Radio 1 DJs!
Clearly those are authors who are cashing in on their "celebrity status". There are hundreds of people we have never seen or heard of in the media who are writing successful books.

As for believing in your work, I wasn't suggesting that self-belief alone was going to get you published. I only suggested that as a way of keeping you going, fighting against the wave of prejudice and rejections!! You must think you're good enough for publication, otherwise why do you do carry on!?

Oh, and I remembered a writer who became physically disabled but went on to write a best-selling book! SO NER-NER-NER!! ;P

Laura Hillenbrand http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Hillenbrand. She struggles with M.E. (chronic fatigue syndrome). She describes it here: http://www.cfids-cab.org/MESA/Hillenbrand.html

According to BBC statistics, 1 in 5 people in the UK is disabled. Then - ipso facto - there must be a proportion of those people who are writers, and successful ones at that.

It's OK, I won't take it personally. You sound pretty rattled. *hugs*
