The big R...

I got my Spice Briefs rejection first thing this morning. Not fun to wake up to, but I really expected it. It's that "highly erotic" tag that I'm sure got my submission booted. Yeah...I have sex in my books described in graphic terms...but no real kink.

Not feeling too blue though...my hubby is *almost* done with Fool's Gold...so I'm going to make my self-imposed deadline of submitting by the end of August. And I've carved out another hour for writing a couple of times a week. My daughter's soccer practice on Mondays and Wednesdays. My husband drops her off, we gobble a picnic dinner at the park, then he takes the boys off to play on the equipment and I write. I got 307 words in yesterday, not much, but it was the first day...

Hey, Ericka, at least you've HEARD from them! I'm still waiting for my rejection of Carnally Ever After, which I sent them back in April and which is now PUBLISHED, for heaven's sake. LOL!

{{{{Hugs}}}}} Rejections are never marvelous.

Sorry to hear it gal...you're in good company, if it helps. ;-) There are plenty of other places to rock and roll!!! Get that baby back out there!

I don't feel bad. I really suspected it wasn't quite what they were looking for. About a month ago, I submitted it to Dark Eden Press and it's been accepted already. On the schedule to be released 1/28/08

Ooh, congrats on the sale to DEP! It's all about finding the right place for it.

The big R is so much a part of the business of writing. It's like if you haven't received a bunch you're not really a writer. LOL!!

It's so much easier to take a rejection that comes after it's already found a home elsewhere. :D
