So…last night I sent a query and synopsis to my publisher for PROTECTING DELLA. Figuring I had until the end of the month. Surprise, Surprise, I had an e-mail waiting for me saying to go ahead and send my full to one of the editors in the line.


That was less than 24 freaking hours. This response may have broken some sort of record. Shh! Don’t tell anyone the submission is not ready. I knew this would happen to me. This is why I’m always prepared. Did I ever tell you I used to be a Brownie (a girl scout) This is why.

You may not here from me until after Thanksgiving. I’ve got some revising to do, but don’t tell anyone.

Quietly, wish me, luck!

    I was a girl scout too.

    Raine-LOL. If nothing else I’ll be working off of adrenalin knowing I need to get this thing in soon. I’ve been mercifuless. Cutting, rewriting, cutting some more. I say that’s the beauty of knowing someone is waiting for your work. You don’t care too much about word count. The book has to read good and the rest just falls to the wayside.
