Submitting to Super

This is an exciting post for me 'cos I'm here to tell you, I've just printed off my first ever requested full mss. 

For Love or Ratings is Declan and Maddie's story of finding love through a reality tv show and it'll be landing on the Superromance editors' desk in the next week or so. Wish I could just beam it there quickly. 

Although I like this story, I'm not holding my breath as it was my first ever attempt at category romance and I hope I've learnt a lot in the last couple of years. However, I've spent the last month rewriting and polishing the full, hopefully improving it with the knowlege I've gleaned. I feel like I've spent so long with this mss that I'm not longer able to look at it subjectively - I really don't know if it's bad, mediaocre or good enough for a revisions request. 

So... guess all I can do now is hope, pray and wait, oh and start on the next submission!!! 

And yes, the bubbly pic is because I'm celebrating - not really drinking as I'm far too pregnant - but this is the furthest I've ever got with a submission, so whatever the outcome... I'm stoked!

Yay Rach! Well done in submitting your first full manuscript. Yet another milestone you can tick off your list. Hopefully the next one will be publication! Will be sending lucky vibes your way.

Lots of luck!!! Now you're in for the hard part... Waiting. Are you working on something else to fill the time and keep from going crazy? (-:

Thanks gals... you are ALL wonderful!!

Crystal - thanks for stopping by. I'm actually now working on a submission for Modern Heat. At the moment, I'm flitting between aiming for Mod Heat and aiming for Super. Keeping my options open, so to speak. And, it keeps the variety in my writing.
