Response from Ellora's Cave!

Hello Fellow Writers!

Today I mailed off the partial that Shana Smith at Silhouette Desire requested. I used the priority mail envelopes both to mail the partial and also for the SASE. I wonder how long before I hear if Silhouette is interested in seeing a full manuscript? Fingers crossed!

I also heard back from Ellora's Cave! The email said "Thank you for submitting to Ellora's Cave Publishing! Your manuscript has been read by our initial editorial reviewer and has been placed in queue for our acquiring editors to consider further."

I'm very excited about this!

Now I need to get started on another book. "Snowed in With a Millionaire" is finished but I need to wait until I hear back from Harlequin/Silhoutte about "The Movie Star's Very Personal Assistant" before I can submit again. I'm also planning on taking another writing class where I'll bring "Snowed" to be critiqued.

I'm tossing around an idea for another contemporary category romance targeted toward Silhouette Desire called "Seduced by Her Captor"... but I'm still in the planning stages.

Also, I wanted to share this link to a website I found, BrendaHiatt.com, with a page called "Show Me the Money!" - it lists everything the author knows about romance novel advances and royalties for various publishers. Interesting stuff!

Wish me luck and good luck to you too!
Yours Truly,
Shoshanna Evers
