Thursday, the Week Before Valentine’s Day

I mailed Tormented to Harlequin Blaze on Wednesday afternoon. I really don’t hold out much hope. It’s quite hard to get in with them, but I’m going to leave it there for the time they recommend. I do have a back up plan if this doesn’t pan out. I know a publishing house that’s really looking for biracial stories but I’m going to wait it out and see what the editor at Blaze has to say.  I was torn between submitting to Silhouette Romantic Suspense and  the Blaze line. Having met Patience Smith and being very impressed with her professionalism, I would love so much to work with her. I think my heat level on this book was a bit too hot for the Silhouette line. The ones I read seemed much less vivid (that’s a  better word than graphic as graphic makes me think of more erotica and my stories are not erotica).  Question of the day:  Anyone read any Silhouettes as hot as Blazes?

BLAZE!!  This is where I am today.  As some of you will recall, Michele was here last week talking about her Valentine’s Day week of guest bloggers.  Her event has been going on all week. Pop over and leave a comment for a chance to win one of her books.


  1. I’m afriad I tend to stay away from most of the Silhouette and Harlequin lines. Not that they’re bad or anything, but because I’m predisposed to reading longer books. The ones I do remember reading when I was younger though, were pretty hot. Of course, that was um…er….well, a long, long time ago LOL I’m sure they’ve become hotter over time 😉

    • I don’t usually read them either, Danica but I won a critique at national last year from Blaze and she said I had a “fun” voice so I thought I’d try a submission there.

  2. I haven’t read any books in the Blaze line. I wish you the best of luck, though, with your MS. 🙂
