So two things…
One: I finished up my final edits to the galley of All Snug and sent them off to Dreamspinner Press just awhile ago. Made a few changes, mostly technical. I hope I don’t have to read it again for a long while! LOL!
I adore the story and it makes me very very proud, but I have read it too many times! Hopefully I am finally done with it.
I can’t wait for it to see “print!”
Two: I just sent a submission to a publisher I have never submitted to before; Silver Publishing. They seem to be a pretty reputable house and I am very excited by the idea of selling them a story.
A dear friend, , suggested that I get my stories sold to as many houses as possible as it looks good as an author resume. She didn’t use those exact words, and maybe she will comment here, but you get the idea.
It looks good to show that multiple houses think you are worthy of publishing.
This story is called A Secret Valentine and I am submitting it to their anthology Never Say Never.
This is what they are looking for:
Any subgenre will be accepted, but must follow a Valentine’s Day theme.
This anthology will feature M/M couples celebrating Valentine’s Day!
We’d love to see something off the beaten path. What have you got for us? An alien being introduced to the customs of Valentine’s Day? Non-human creatures affected by the magic of the holiday? A secret admirer revealed? An ex back in the picture? A wish fulfilled in a new and interesting way? We want to see your best sensual or erotic romance Valentine’s Day story.
Now there are no aliens in this story. It is more like a “A secret admirer revealed,” and I think it is very sweet and romantic with a fearsome HOT love scene. Let’s hope they agree.
Silver Publishing was also accepting Halloween and Christmas stories and wound up closing their submissions weeks (almost two month respectively) early. So even though the deadline wasn’t until January 8, 2011, I wasn’t taking any chances!
I love this little story and I hope they do as well!
And now to bed and tomorrow it will be working on a second draft of my vampire story!
Good night all, and pleasant dreams!
