Master Koda is excited to Welcome Brenda Perlin to our blog today. Brenda will share her greatest writer’s moment with us. And I will be honest, it brought tears to my eyes. It’s always nice to know you are in the middle of someone’s greatest moment.
Have you ever had a moment, even if it was a split second when someone noticed you for the unique person you are or complimented you on a job well done? Do you remember what that feels like in your heart?
The happiest moment in my experience as a writer thus far has been the acceptance letter I received from my present publisher, Master Koda Select Publishing. Several months back I sent my manuscript titled Home Wrecker into this publishing company with the hopes they might consider representing me. Before this happened I was starting to have self-doubt but I was not going to give up hope because I wanted them to represent me with all my heart. As the weeks passed, my optimism started to leave my body. My six sense told me we were a good fit and continued to wish for this to become a reality. Yet, as the days passed, my confidence started to dissipate. Even if tried not to stress, those negative inner voices were stored in my subconscious.
The day I received this letter I had almost given up on this dream becoming a reality. Even though this company has not been in existence for long, I had a feeling about them. Call this a hunch but I knew we could work well together. I got to know Kim Mutch Emerson from Facebook and I loved her ongoing encouragement and support she showed authors. She was always available to help at a moments notice.
Besides the gratitude I have for Kim and the Master Koda family, Arlene R O’Neil must know how much I appreciate her. We met a while back after I read her moving book called Broken Spokes. Her story inspired me so much that I decided to contact her. Right away I sensed an instant connection. In a way, our sad stories bonded us. At least, that is how I felt.
Months later when I got out of a bad contract with my first publisher, Arlene suggested I send my manuscript to Kim at Master Koda. Before then, I never even considered doing that. I was not prepared for any new rejection. Instead of being negative, I decided to give it a try and follow through with Arlene’s suggestion.
It is my belief that fate stepped in and made this union a reality. All it took was for the stars to be in perfect alignment. The camaraderie that we have is already so satisfying. Being a part of the Master Koda family makes me extremely proud. I’d jump up and down on rooftops, if I could. Instead, I am just going to share my story of gratitude.

I live in Orange County, California. I have spent most of my working life in the physical fitness arena. I love the gratification that comes with helping people achieve their fitness goals and I love the fulfillment that comes with having a healthy body.
I moved from the Los Angeles area where I was raised to Orange County in the Spring of 2005. During that time I was a housewife with a couple of dogs. Now I am not. Instead I am writing my adventures for all to read.
