Books, Books and More Books!

Hi! Late post this week. I have been working feverishly to get a manuscript ready for an open submission call next week, so I haven't been actually writing. I'd talk about it here, but I get a little weird/superstitious when it comes to submitting and I don't want to jinx it. I will say that any long time readers of the blog may remember me posting spinets out of a WIP last year titled "Frat Pack Alpha." It ended up not being a romance and it's also looking like it might be my first attempt to submit anything non-romantic.

Speaking about books, just as soon as I'm finished having my melt-down over submitting "Frat Pack Alpha," I'll be finishing the self-publication process for not one, but two Talbot's Peak stories. One is "Witch's Moon" which features Mooney and Marissa. The other is "Fat Aussie Bastard," which features a certain deputy sheriff and his unpredictable Washington State PI. The third one I've been working on, "Cat Got Your Tongue," is about Lex, but it's still pretty rough.

Last but not least, we will be having a guest blogger tomorrow and she's got a little something for us: a free, full-length e-book! Check in tomorrow to chat with Elisa March about her newest release, "Hot Highland Fling," and find out how you can get your hands on a free--yes FREE--copy of it!

Wow, Rebecca, great going! on all your Talbot's Peak projects. I do remember Frat Pack Alpha. Good Luck! Or, break a leg. Whichever works. Yeah, I get kinda superstitious too, at times, and like to hold the cards close to the vest.

This wouldn't be the Harper Voyager non-agented open sub, would it? I've got a non-romance horror/fantasy I'm sending them. If I get my YA paranormal into decent shape (over the next two weeks! Gahh! It's not even finished as a draft yet!) I'll send 'em that one too. You don't have to answer if you don't want to jinx it. I'm more of a pessimist where subs are concerned, so I'll spill my guts about anything.

Good luck with it, though, and looking forward to the Talbot's Peak stories. You've been a busy girl!

Pat, yep, that's the one. Good luck with your sub, too!

I've been in a bit of a "don't want to submit NUTHIN'" kind of funk lately. I figured forcing myself to submit something would be the best way to break that cycle. And the worst they can say is no, right?
