Whew - lot's going on over here....new members, new features, new guests - WRIB authors are really stepping up to this blog thing LOL!
If you've followed my blog at all, you'll know that I utilized the kill clause in my contract with Enspiren Press for my WF novel, The Visionary and signed with Literary Agent, Les Stobbe to pitch that book along with another WF novel - well he is. He sent the proposal to 8 editors and so far we've received, three rejections.
A funny thing happened though....a friend sent me a notice she received about a new line of romances Strang is implementing. From the guidelines available it appeared they are looking for Amish/Historical novels.
Not sure if they took contemporary at all, I decided to email the editor and ask.
The answer was no.
BUT, she informed me that REALMS does accept contemporary but they like "supernatural" elements to be in the story. She then went on to describe "supernatural" as subtle - evidence of God working behind the scenes OR as obvious as angels and demons.
Excited, I highlighted that explanation and sent an email to my friend that my novel The Visionary had these and described a couple of scenes in the book to illustrate.
Ever hit the 'send' button and realize you've sent something to the wrong person?
The email went straight to that editor!
I quickly forwarded it to my friend with a note that the editor would either think I'm a dork or ask for a proposal LOL!
Before my friend could respond, the editor ASKED for a proposal.
I immediately revised my proposal to show the supernatuaral elements more clearly and sent all the emails to my agent with the new proposal. He then submitted it.
Now you tell me, isn't that too odd, too coincedental, to not be God?
I think so.
Until next time.....take care and Be BLESSED!
