Welcoming Grey Cells Press Author Marlene Lee to AuthorsAnon – Marlene has kindly accepted to be interviewed on the Newsletter (more on this soon)…
Like everyone else, I’m in close communication with someone I’ve never seen. This is nothing new. For two centuries and more there have been business letters, diplomatic communiques, telegrams, conveyed by post, messenger, cable. There have been pen pals. Epistolary romances.
For me, it’s literary business conducted with The Editor in Europe.
The business is real but The Editor is an invention.
Is he effusive? Yes. I like warmth and so that is how I find him: warm. Does he appreciate my writing? Yes. He has good taste. Do I occasionally have to send him the same manuscript or answer the same question twice? Yes, but that’s because I want The Editor to operate on memory and intuition, not records and data. Besides, he’s busy with multiple publishing responsibilities bestowed on him by other discriminating writers. And he may simply not have heard me. It’s a long way to Europe.
