  1. Ooooo, you are baaaaad!!! He really is all the man a gal could ever need. The character Aragorn, I mean, not Viggo (tho he is a hottie).

     

    I did have a question for you, Paula. I am going to jump off and start my blog. I've looked at blogspot, it almost seems too easy. Did you shop around a lot before choosing that blog host, or just find it and go with it? It seems about as simple as it gets, I think I just have cold feet. I'm also wondering if there is any fine print I'm missing, kwim?

  3. Hi cathmom,

    I was wondering if you'd mind sharing the name of the romance line that you're aiming to publish with, that requires 50,000 words?

     

    I did a lot of research on prospective publishers about 11 years ago, but then I had twins and, as you well know, the last decade has been very busy! But it's time to dust off my own writing aspirations.

     

    By the way, I saw the photos of your guys on your blog, your twins are ADORABLE and your big guy is a handsome fella, too.

     

    Thanks - PJ

  4. Hey, I believe it when the Bible says, in Jeremiah 17:9 -

    "The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it?"

    Above that, I know my own insides. Pretty icky at times. Oooooo, Amazing Grace indeed, I am so thankful for it! A good, discussion-provoking thread, I'd give you some rep if I could!

  5. Years ago I intended to try submitting to Harlequin's Intrigue line, and that's what my nanowrimo work is based upon - writing to those guidelines, best as I can remember them. You would call my genre "romantic intrigue," sort of a romance, with a mystery/suspense/adventure plot. I don't even know if H. publishes the Intrigue line anymore, or if it may havetaken a dark turn (ie, supernatural elements). I guess for now the goal is to just get one novel actually on paper in rough form. Then i will go on another publisher guidelines hunt and polish up the mss based on who I intend to send it to. I really do not want to have to include too much physical stuff, kwim? I think that's what has me leaning towards a Christian publisher.

     

    I really like the writing of Terry Blackstock, she writes fiction for women with Christian characters, but they also have substantial plots and often mystery. Not like a typical "Christian romance." You might enjoy her books if you have not already.

     

    I wish you much success in your new career! Maybe one day each of the boardies will be able to say, "I knew her back when...."
