My road to publication has had many falling gates and speed bumps but thanks to RWA have finally reached my destinationJ Without RWA I’d still be an isolated writer and without attending the 2012 RWA conference wouldn’t have been at the right place at the right time. Not only did Harlequin announce the new digital-first Escape but on a panel the very lovely Beverly Cousins (Random House) offered to look at unsolicited manuscripts from RWA members.
So post-conference sent submissions out like they were Christmas cards and settled down for the long wait. In a matter of weeks Kate Cuthbert from Escape emailed with an offer on a category outback story. Speechless. And then Beverley Cousins offered on my drought-story single title. Gobsmacked. So here I am still pinching myself and so very thankful to RWA and all the fabulous people that make it the special place that it is.
What Love Sounds Like will be out in January with Escape Publishing and then in February Beneath Outback Skies will be a launch title for the new digital-first Random Romance list of Random House. And no matter how many times I write this, it still doesn’t seem realJ
