Silhouette Desire Requested a Partial!


Hello Fellow Writers!

I have exciting news. Drumroll, please.... five weeks after submitting a query letter and synopsis of "The Movie Star's Very Personal Assistant" to Silhouette Desire, I got a letter in the mail requesting a partial manuscript!

So I printed out the first three chapters, read through the pages and made a couple tiny changes, and then printed them out again along with another copy of the synopsis. Now I need to buy a couple of envelopes big enough to hold the partial and to use as a SASE. I also need to figure out how many stamps the darn thing needs!

I had originally sent the query to Diana Ventimiglia, but the letter I got said that she wasn't working in that position any longer, and that all the queries sent to Ms. Ventimiglia were forwarded to Shana Smith. So it was Ms. Smith who requested the partial.

I'm very excited about this whole thing. It's a step in the right direction!
Wish me luck, and good luck to you too!
Yours Truly,
Shoshanna Evers

  1. Her name is Shana? That HAS to be a good sign! :-)

  2. It's funny, I always thought Shana was a bit of a unique name, but yeah, her name is Shana too!
