First off, check in over at The Revenge where JK Coi is talking about her new Steampunk short from Ellora’s Cave, IRON SEDUCTION. This is not your typical Steampunk, what with the Great Wall of China and the stone zombie warriors. Click here to hop over.
Tuesday, I received a very exciting email. I am officially a PRO member of Romance Writers of America. For those who don’t know, this means I have finished a manuscript and attempted to sell it. In essence, I’ve managed to get rejected. Which sounds like a bad thing, but in this case is good.
I’ve been a member of RWA since 2007 and attended three Nationals conferences in the last three years. For nearly every exhausting minute of those conferences, I was certain I would be revealed as a fraud at any moment. I’d never finished a manuscripts, had no sad rejection stories to share. Until last year I wasn’t even pitching.
Ironically, now that I have a completed and revised MS as well as my shiny new PRO status, I’m not attending the RWA National conference coming up in two weeks. (It’s killing me!) BUT, I will be attending the Georgia Romance Writers Moonlight &Magnolias conference in the fall at which I intend to have another completed MS ready to pitch and a brand new pin to add to my flare.
Guess that means I better get back to work.
