Well, 45 days passed and I got an e-mail regarding Crystal Clear (CC). It was one of the most encouraging rejections I've ever gotten. No contract forthcoming for this story; however, some suggestions were offered and the publisher asked to see it again after revision. So. . . there's still hope.
I've decided to finish The Were Whisperer (TWW) before revising CC. Although I have some good ideas of what to add to CC, I don't want to stop my momentum on TWW.
On another note, I just finished "attending" the online Cobblestone Press Historical Workshop. Wow! What a lot of information about the genre and the e-publishers. And the really great part is that I now have a critique partner!
I met Beverley during Avon Fanlit. She's just now completed the first draft of her sexy historical and I'm excited that I'll get to be part of helping her prepare the manuscript for her opportunity to pitch the manuscript to a Berkley editor. Go Beverley!
