What a big job it is to receive permission for all the many, many quotes in my book, Trust the Mystery. Filling in forms, finding email addresses for authors, searching out websites, and then waiting, reminding, and thanking. I’ve only been turned down a couple of times. Most people are very willing to be quoted. The bigger publishing companies create contracts that have dates and details and payment requests. Sixty-three done; twenty-eight approvals still to garner.
