Last week I got the best phone message, the one all of us writers want to hear. It was an editor at Harlequin telling me they wanted my book. I laughed, I danced, I sang. I tried to call her back. Curses! My cell phone plan does not let me dial international and Harlequin is in Canada.
I use a Straight Talk phone and I normally love my little old simple, inexpensive smart phone. I opted not to get the international add-on because I just don't call other countries. Since Canada is in North America, should it really be considered international? Apparently the folks at Straight Talk think so.
There I sat, dying to talk to this editor, with no way to reach her. My honey and his phone would not be home for hours. The laughing and singing turned to growling and cursing. Then I remembered, there is a way to use my computer for phone calls. Would this work? I quickly dived into research mode and found Google Voice. It was easy to set up and after I completed all the steps I dialed the Canadian number. Success! I reached the editor and had a great call. It's so nice when a product does what it says and does it well. Thank you, Google, for coming to my rescue.
