I’m wondering about eggs. And baskets. And wondering if I’ve got too many in one place with the whole Modern Heat thing. Because that’s the only line I’m targetting at the moment. Mainly because I really, really wanted to get a handle on it and doing anything else felt like changing my focus. Yeah, I’m a little bit obsessive like that.
The problem though is, yep, you guessed it, wait times. I have been inching forward, it’s true. And I do feel like I’m making some progress. But it’s by slow increments. And I’m such an imptatient little person that it’s doing my head in. The ed has chapters 2 and 3 and my synopsis but I haven’t received any answer on this yet. It hasn’t been long so I shouldn’t complain. But I’ve finished rewriting my story now and once again I am waiting.
And this time I’m wondering if I should do something different, branch out. Even – shock, horror! – try a different publisher. Thing is, I like writing Modern Heat. Even if I wasn’t writing to the guidelines, my stories would still be very Modern/Modern Heat. Perhaps they’d be longer and the language would be stronger (let’s face it, alphas probably wouldn’t say ‘god’ or ‘hell’ or ‘insert appropriate mild curse here’ ALL the time) but they’d still be essentially character driven because that’s what I like to write.
Still, maybe it’s worth thinking about. Be nice to have more than one submission out there, I have to say. Challenge myself too. Although I do feel I’m being challenged enough in getting MH right!
Anyone else out there targetting different publishers? What do you reckon? Worth a crack?
