I am literally shaking right now. I finally received a response from Sharilyn Miller, the editor at Belle Armoire, and her response was unsatisfactory to say the least.
She has told me that I cannot post any portion of her letter online -- does this give you any idea of the content of the letter? And I haven't had a chance to meet with my lawyer yet, so I don't know if I can post it here or not. She also asked me to remove the quotes I posted from her earlier emails, but I will only do that if my lawyer tells me that I should.
However I will tell you, without quoting her since I can't at this point, that she has said that she is deleting all the emails that you are sending to her.
I am seeking legal advice because at this point I see no alternative. Wish me luck!
