Darn, but my week has been a mixed bag! And I can see from my fellow crewmates in the Lounge that the winter blues are taking their toll. I'm going to shovel my bad news out the way first so I can finish on a glimmer of hope much like the first sniff of spring, lol.
on the whole, the having five submissions out thing hasn't done my moral a whole lot of good. :P
On the plus side, I happened to spot an editor on the look out for particular genres for her publisher on Twitter, and made a submission to her (this is why it's so important to stalk...I mean follow such professionals on social media. You get to spot special requests and events). So I have something with her, plus my supernatural story still out. My paranormal short story got the thumbs up from my editor, and will shortly be going into edits. I'm debating self publishing the cyberpunk short rejected by WDSF. And having taken part in the Tender Love critique event last week, I got two requests on those manuscripts. See? It's not all doom and gloom!
Plus I'm in the midst of an exciting week on my own blog. I had SF author SA Check visiting me Monday with his SF mystery adventure Welcome to GreenGrass. On Tuesday, the awesome Dan Wells stopped by to talk about the weather. Honestly, that's not because I'm a Brit - there's an interesting reason behind the discussion that authors might find worth reading. Today I have a cover reveal for YA supernatural romance Fatal by TA Brock, and Friday is Shona Husk with her tentacular SciFi romance Lunar Reunion. Pop over and say hi HERE!
Laurie and Donna - I hope the outlook is brighter for you both very soon. Spring is coming!
