When It Rains...

You've heard the old saying, "When it rains, it pours..."

Sometimes that's a good thing, and sometimes it can cause horrendous stress. As you know, I've been working on a book, Playing Doctor [originally titled, A Doctor In The House] off and on for a year. Throughout that year, it's caught several editor's attention. It made it through the Harlequin M&B Medical pitch, with an eventual rejection, but with a wonderful 2-page feedback letter from Flo Nicoll with the invitation to write something else and submit it. Revamped, it made it through the HQN Blaze pitch with a request for the partial manuscript. A few months ago it also caught the eye of Heather Howland of Entangled Publishing with a request for the full manuscript upon completion.

Over the past few months, I've tweaked, twiddled, and fiddled with the manuscript, and just before submitting it, it caught the eye of an editor conducting a writer's workshop with Savvy Authors. [I was using the first chapter for the class] She asked to see the manuscript.

The past two weeks, some wonderful things have been happening. Great things.

Stay tuned to this station for further developments!
