They're in the Mail!

My very first mass mailing to art directors went out to all the publishing houses on my wish list Saturday! After spending last week double checking all the publishers I've been researching and verifying addresses, art directors, and submission requirements, all my envelopes were stuffed, stamped, and mailed. Just in time to beat the postal rate increase. Funny thing is I had brought my prototype to the post office last week to make sure I had the right amount of postage. I was told it needed 63 cents. Well, I heard on the radio this morning that the new amount for a letter requiring an extra stamp actually decreased to 59 cents! Interesting how they didn't think of mentioning that when I was at the post office. Oh well, at least it gave me a deadline. And a deadline always makes me get things done.
