I write cozies with a touch of romance featuring sassy female sleuths. Of course she couldn't solve the mystery without the help of friends, so grab a coffee, pull up a chair and make yourself at home.
As I said last week, I've taken the leap and sent my submission into Mills and Boon. Now for the hard bit... waiting! I am terrible at waiting (as I have said many times before). It's impossible to not think about it. In fact, the more I try not to think about it the more it seems to weigh on me. The anything-but-a-rejection high versus the what-was-I-thinking low.
The only thing I do know is regardless of the outcome I am not going to give up. After all, imagine if these people had:
Harry Potter was rejected 8 times.
The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was rejected 104 times.
Stephen King’s Carrie was rejected 30 times.
Frank Herbert’s Dune was rejected 23 times.
Gone With the Wind was rejected 38 times.
Jonathan Livingston Seagull was rejected 18 times.
