An Award...for me?

I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Rox Delaney. What a great surprise this was--and it couldn't have come at a better time. So a big thank you to Rox!

The Liebster is a pay-it-forward kind of award. There's no committee that chooses the recipients and is a simple recognition from one blogger to another of how great and appreciated your blog is.

Thumbs Down

As you can probably guess by my delay in posting this update, I got a rejection on my Fast Track Romance submission : (

Yes, I'm sad. Yes, I'm disappointed. Yes, I'll keep writing.

This rejection really got me thinking about what was wrong with my submission, and I think I've figured it out. As usual, I've over complicated things. I feel like I need to add twists and turns instead of focusing on the main conflict. *head slap*. I need to remember to KISS (Keep it simple stupid)!

So back I go to simplify, strengthen the characters, and focus on keeping it centred around the H and h.

And belated apologizes to anyone who has been commenting on my blog and haven't seen their comments published. I had on a filter, and I just found a whole bunch of comments waiting for moderation...some of them a year old! And here I was thinking no one loved me! I am SO SORRY to all of you! Filter has now been removed, so comment away!
